Book Review of
The Westing Game
A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, on things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead…but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!
The Westing Game was one the mystery books I read when I was twelve. I have read this book twice and loved it both times. It has many twists and turns that bring the characters lives and attitudes into perspective. The end has hidden surprises that will excite readers of all ages. I would recommend this for kids nine and up, but teens, who love mysteries, may like this book too.
