Stories from Days Gone By – The Westing Game

The next in my occasional series revisiting some books from childhood.

The Westing Game by Ellen RaskinThe Westing Game

Review: The game is afoot. This middle school grade mystery kept me guessing for awhile. It has many different characters who may or may not be who they seem so sometimes keeping them straight can be a challenge. Overall, this story held up moderately well. I’ve read more sophisticated mysteries since I first read “The Westing Game” and that most likely colored my view this time around. Nevertheless, a classic.
