Teaser Tuesdays: Juliet

Wow – last day of August. Can't believe this year is zipping by so fast. Fall is right around the corner; although that's hard to believe too, what with temperatures still in the 90s here in Northern Virginia.

So, here we have the last teaser of the month. This week my teaser lines come from Anne Fortier's debut novel Juliet. Since I'm just getting started on this one, I'm using the first lines from the book's Prologue. And this is Juliet speaking – one of the Juliets, anyway:
They say I died. My heart stopped, and I was not breathing – in the eyes of the world I was really dead. Some say for three minutes, some say four; personally, I am beginning to think death is mostly a matter of opinion. (p.3)
Hmmm. Sounds a little like something Anne Rice might have written. I'm hoping Julie isn't hanging out with the undead.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.
