Teaser Tuesday: The Juliet Spell

My Teaser, from page 33:

     "Have ye no beer?"
     "How old are you?" I asked him.
     "Sixteen, near seventeen."
     "You have to be twenty-one to drink beer in California," I said.
     "Twenty-one? What the hell for?" he asked. "Are ye savages?"


Hee Hee! Got a teaser?
Leave a link so I can visit :)


From the Back Cover:

I wanted the role of Juliet more than anything. I studied hard. I gave a great reading for it—even with Bobby checking me out the whole time. I deserved the part.

I didn't get it. So I decided to level the playing field, though I actually might have leveled the whole play. You see, since there aren't any Success in Getting to Be Juliet in Your High School Play spells, I thought I'd cast the next best—a Fame spell. Good idea, right?

Yeah. Instead of bringing me a little fame, it brought me someone a little famous. Shakespeare. Well, Edmund Shakespeare. William's younger brother.

Good thing he's sweet and enthusiastic about helping me with the play...and—ahem—maybe a little bit hot. But he's from the past. Way past. Cars amaze him—cars! And cell phones? Ugh.

Still, there's something about him that's making my eyes go star-crossed....

  4. Hi Jenny,

    I'm not sure that this is a book I would be rushing out to buy, but it is an interesting storyline and the teaser lines made me smile.

    It set me to thinking who I would want to resurrect from the past,if I could cast a spell?

    Thanks for sharing
