In Language Arts class we read the mystery book, The Westing Game, which was written by Ellen Raskin and won a Newbery Award in 1979. I really liked this book. At first it was confusing but then everything made sense. The book is about a man named Sam Westing who has come back to the town WestingTown in Wisconsin to seek his heir. Sam Westing suddenly dies, and brings together all of his “heirs” to his mansion for the reading of his will. In his will he describes how he was murdered by one of the heirs in the room. Sam Westing creates a nasty game for each heir to find out which one is not who they say they are and when the murderer will strike again. Read the Westing Game by Ellen Raskin to find out who the guilty one is.
