Zahn's Review: The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
Pages: 216
Published by Scholastic, 2004
Newbery Medal Award

Goodreads Description:
When an eccentric millionaire dies mysteriously, sixteen very unlikely people are gathered together for the reading of the will...and what a will it is!

What I liked, I liked that this is a sitting on the edge of your seat mystery. Lots of dramatic adventure, and if you like mysteries you’ll love this book! I thought it was fantastic.

What I didn’t like, it was very confusing and almost nothing made sense until a little after they solved the mystery.

A short review, 16 different people are all invited to Sam westing’s funereal, with no connection except that they all live in sunset towers. Sam westing’s Will says that he was murdered and he creates a game for them all to find the name of the person using 5 clues for each pair. If they win they get 2 million dollars! But they have to find it before they are the next victim.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 foxes.

I really liked the character named Chris in this book. He was smart and crippled, and nice.
