I like this, it has a lot of mystery in it.
The Westing Game: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition
By Ellen Raskin
For over thirty-five years, Ellen Raskin's Newbery Medal-winning The Westing Game has been an enduring favorite.
This highly inventive mystery involves sixteen people who are invited to the reading of Samuel W. Westing's will. They could become millionaires-it all depends on how they play the tricky and dangerous Westing game, a game involving blizzards, burglaries, and bombings! Ellen Raskin has created a remarkable cast of characters in a puzzle-knotted, word-twisting plot filled with humor, intrigue, and suspense.

In westing games, 16 heirs compete in a challenge to figure out who killed Samual W. Westing for a cash prize of 2 hundred million dollars. this book has a lot of plot twists and bombs yes bombs if you like mystery then read this book. And find out who the murderer is and who wins 2 hundred million dollars.
It all started at the westing house. 16 Heirs were given one last look at Sam westing. the will was read by Edgar Plum. The westing game has begun
Sam Westing was the son of immigrants, the founder of Westing Paper products, a millionaire, and most of all, mysterious. After being the victim of a car crash, Mr. Westing disappeared. And now, on Halloween, his body has been found. He's dead, or is he? How did he die? That's the question 16 heirs, almost all from the newly built apartment, Sunset Towers, are challenged to answer. And what will they get if they win? 200 million dollars. And one of the heirs is a murderer, or is that even true? I like the Westing Game because even though it's a thrilling mystery, it is also funny. See if you can solve the puzzle before the heirs do! I bet you can't do it!
I loved this book so much! It had lots of mysteriousness and it almost made me laugh! But it had lots of painfulness so people might be afraid and ignore it. But this story should be shared to grades that are higher than 3rd graders. Sure, people think it's not scary, but that's their opinion. Some people may be scared and some may not. But that's okay. But people should read this book! I recommend you reading these books if you are 9 years old or higher
just a warning, there is death involved in this book, if you are not interested in murder mysteries than I suggest for you not to read this book.
When I saw this book I was not interested.
