The Westing Game Literature Unit

By Ellen Raskin

Mr. Westing, the town’s richest man, passed away (or was he murdered?) and has left a fortune. His will calls for sixteen people to gather and find out the details of the “game” he has planned for them. Each of the sixteen people receives a special invitation to the reading of the will. Each of them is connected to Mr. Westing in some way. Mr. Westing always loved games so he asks his potential beneficiaries to solve his murder. The one who puts all the pieces together to solve the crime is the winner and will inherit his fortune.

It takes some focus to keep track of all sixteen characters and their interactions. However, the author keeps the reader interested by constantly dropping hints to help solve the mystery. There are many surprises as the cast of characters partner up and then turn against each other in order to win the fortune. The ending is well-written and quite a surprise, keeping the reader guessing all the way to the end.
