Raised outside of Boston, Ivy’s immigrant grandmother relies on Ivy’s mild appearance for cover as she teaches her granddaughter how to pilfer items from yard sales. Thieving allows Ivy to accumulate the trappings of a suburban teen --- and, most importantly, to attract the attention of Gideon Speyer. But when Ivy’s mother discovers her trespasses, punishment is swift and Ivy is sent to China. Years later, Ivy has grown into a poised yet restless young woman. Back in Boston, when Ivy bumps into Gideon’s sister, a reconnection with Gideon seems inevitable. Slowly, Ivy sinks her claws into Gideon and the entire Speyer clan. But just as Ivy is about to have everything she’s ever wanted, a ghost from her past resurfaces, threatening the nearly perfect life she’s worked so hard to build.
