My Pick of the Week: February 20-25

This week’s pick is The Westing Game, by Ellen Raskin.

While written mainly for children, this book has a lot to share with adults as well. It is about a rich and eccentric man’s death, and the game he makes his heirs play in order to determine which of them will inherit his fortune. Ellen Raskin creates some of the most interesting and three-dimensional characters in all of children’s literature.
