Review: The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

My Rating: ★★★½

Genre: Children’s Literature; Mystery

Goodreads Plot: Where there’s a will, there’s a way—and Sam Westing has left quite a will!

One fateful day, sixteen people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. To their surprise, the will turns out to be a contest, challenging the heirs to find out who among them is Westing’s murderer. Forging ahead, through blizzards, burglaries, and bombings, the game is on. Only two people hold all the clues. One of them is the Westing heir. The other is you!

My Thoughts: (I rated this book 4 on Goodreads because they don’t have half-stars and I didn’t want to under-rate it) It took me a while to get into this book. The format was weird, and I was in sort of a funk when I started it. But I’m so glad that I finished it, because the twist at the end made it totally worth it. There were a lot of characters in this book, so it was hard to keep track at first, and I found myself getting confused a lot with who was who. It wasn’t a great book, but it wasn’t horrible either.
