Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a young adult mystery novel with secrets, betrayal, and much more. Inheritance Games, in my opinion, is a lot like the movie Knives Out. The plot starts out with this girl named Avery who has no home and is living in her car trying to pass school when suddenly she gets called to her principal's office. Her whole life changes when she enters the room. A billionaire, Tobias Hawthorne had died and instead of leaving his inheritances to his grandchildren, Avery got it. She is forced to move into his house and live with all of his grandchildren. Some of them think she is a clue to be solved, others think that she is a threat that needs to be removed for their safety. Grayson Hawthorne is one of the people who think Avery is a threat determined to take him and his brothers down. Jameson Hawthorne, on the other hand, thinks that she is the last puzzle that his grandfather left him. Caught in a mess of family drama, money, and betrayal, Avery needs to figure out why she was chosen to inherit his entire fortune when she had never even met him. This book kept you wondering what was gonna happen and shocked you on every page. I recommend this book to 14+ kids who like thriller books or to watch the upcoming film version of this book.
