The title of my book is The Westing Game. The author of my book is Ellen Raskin. The main characters in the book are Sam Westing, Madame Sun Lin Hoo, Jake Wexler, Turtle Wexler, Flora Baumbauch, Chris Theodorakis, D. Denton Deere, Alexander McSouthers, J.J. Ford, Grace Wexler, James Shin Hoo, Berthe Erica Crow, Julian R. Eastman, Amber Otis, Theo Theodorakis, Doug Hoo, Sydelle Pulaski, Barney Northrup, and Angela Wexler. My favorite character is Angela because she is really pretty and is a great friend to Sydelle when she fractures her ankle. The story takes place at Sunset Towers. It all starts out when Sam, Turtle, and Doug, have a bet on Halloween with some other people that they could stay in this hunted old house who someone died in for a long time. They got two dollars an hour. When it got really late they went in the house and timed themselves. Turtle saw a skeleton and ran out screaming. Sam heard her but thought it was a trick so he stayed in there. After awhile Doug came out, too. The next day they saw on the news that Sam Westing was found dead in the haunted house!!!! Everyone that worked or lived there was called to a meeting to hear the will. It said that one of them killed him and he did not die naturally. To figure out who is the murderer they must play the Westing Game. Rules: You will each will be in groups of two, each pair will receive 10,000 dollars, each pair will receive one set of clues, if any player drops out his or her partner will have to drop out also, and give back the 10,000 dollars, each pair will be given 2 days notice to the next session, there you can share one answer, object of the game to win. Remember it’s not what clues you have it’s what you don’t have. The pairs are: #1 Madame Sun Lin Hoo, and Jake Wexler #2 Turtle Wexler and Flora Baumbauch

#3 Chris Theodorakis and D. Denton Deere
#4 Alexander McSouthers and J.J. Ford
#8 Sydelle Pulaski and Angela Wexler
#5 Grace Wexler, and James Shin Hoo
