The Westing Game

I read this book when I was in 6th grade and thought I'd give it another try. It is simple yet engaging through the tale of a millionaire, a murder, and a "Clue"-like game that a few dinner guests must play. No one can be trusted and yet everyone must be relied on in order to win the game, find out who the murder is, and win the two-hundred million dollar prize. I would use this book in small group book clubs or reading groups. I wouldn't suggest this to all elementary level students because there is a lot to follow in the story. It also caters to a very specific mystery-loving audience. Any student who doesn't love mystery in books would be instantly bored as there isn't much else that they would be able to grab their attention on to.
