The Inheritance Games   

By: Jennifer Lynn Barnes 


The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a mystery fiction book. The main character, Avery Kylie Grambs, inherits 46.2 billion dollars from Tobias Hawthorne. Avery has never met Tobias Hawthorne, so it is a mystery as to why she inherits the money instead of his family. She gets taken to the Hawthorne mansion, and she learns that to inherit all of the money she has to live in the Hawthorne house for a year. She meets Tobias’s four grandchildren and their mother who are suspicious as to why she inherited the money. Jameson, one of the grandchildren, thinks that this is one final game his grandfather organized, and he thinks Avery is the key to it all.

In this twisted game, secrets are revealed that should probably stay hidden. Between Avery joining her new school and meeting people who supposedly hate her and a dead girl’s mother who blames the Hawthorne family for her daughter’s death, it is safe to say Avery has her hands full these first few months. Adapting to all of the changes is keeping Avery busy, but a few murder attempts in the mix ought to help.
