Throwback Thursday: The Westing Game

The westing game.jpgAfter a short break, we’re back! For this Throwback Thursday I recommend: The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin.

The mysterious death of an eccentric millionaire brings together an unlikely assortment of heirs who must uncover the circumstances of his death before they can claim their inheritance.

This is fun classic mystery- first published in 1978! This book also won the Newbery Medal Award in 1979. There is a really enjoyable plot especially interesting as every character is competing to win the inheritance money. This is perfect for mystery readers and those who enjoyed books such as The Mysterious Benedict Society and From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E . Frankweiler.

You can find it in the Juvenile Mystery section at J RASKIN.
