Book Synopsis



A Newbery Medal Winner

A supersharp mystery...confoundingly clever, and very funny. --Booklist, starred review

A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing's will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger--and a possible murderer--to inherit his vast fortune, on things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead...but that won't stop him from playing one last game!

Winner of the Newbery Medal
Winner of the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award
An ALA Notable Book

Great fun for those who enjoy illusion, word play, or sleight of hand. --The New York Times Book Review

A fascinating medley of word games, disguises, multiple aliases, and subterfuges--a demanding but rewarding book. --The Horn Book



Review Quotes



"A supersharp mystery . . . Confoundingly clever, and very funny."

Unknown - 8 years ago
Westing Game is a perfect book for people grade 4 and above who love reading mysteries. This book is about a man, Sam Westing, who is murdered by one of the “16 heirs”. The heirs are divided into pairs of 2, each given a number of clues to solve the mystery. The heirs take on an adventure of their lives, making special relationships with their partners. There are several red herrings, not to mention the burglar, bomber and the mistake. This book will hook you in so good, it will be impossible to put down.
