Rating: ★★★★☆

Westing Game is written by Ellen Raskin it’s about an old man who is a billionaire who makes every one play a game to see who get his money. But they have to be careful because no one is who they say they are. My favorite part of the book is when they are at Angela’s party and the present explodes. I would recommend it for people who love mystery.
