Praise for The Westing Game
* "A supersharp mystery...confoundingly clever, and very funny." —Booklist, starred review
"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

My favorite line was an introspection by a 17 year old. Funny enough it still applies to most social interactions
"He couldn't think of a single thing to say that wasn't stupid or childish or childishly stupid."
This book was assigned to my son as reading material for 8th grade, logically I got a copy to discuss with him.
Four stars. This is good material to spark and inspire young minds. No brainer for a Newbery Medal.
