Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as following:

·Grab your current read
·Open to a random page
·Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
·Be careful not to include any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.

Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.

The Dead Girls Detective AgencySeries: Stand alone (?)
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: Sept. 18, 2012
Format: ARC
Pages: 364
Source: Received from publisher for review.
Pop quiz: What would you do if you had to solve your own murder to get anywhere in death?

Maybe if I hadn't slept through my alarm, slammed into Kristin--my high school's reigning mean

girl--or stepped in a puddle, destroying my mom's new suede DVF boots (which I borrowed without asking), I wouldn't have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I wouldn't have been pushed in front of that arriving train. But I did, and I was.

When I came to, I was informed by a group of girls that I'm dead. And that because I died under mysterious circumstances, I can't pass straight over to the Other Side. But at least I'm not alone. Meet the Dead Girls Detective Agency: Nancy, Lorna, and Tess--not to mention Edison, the really cute if slightly hostile dead boy. Apparently, the only way out of this limbo is to figure out who killed me, or I'll have to spend eternity playing Nancy Drew. Considering I was fairly invisible in life, who could hate me enough to want me dead? And what if my murderer is someone I never would have suspected?

My Teaser ~

  "But when I woke up that morning, I didn't know I only had six hours of my life left. Why would I? When it comes to the end - biting the bullet, kicking the bucket - it's not like someone walks up and warns you. You don't see blond girls dressed all in white, flapping their big old angel wings. Or a particularly menacing black crow. Your iPhone doesn't suddenly install a Reaper app." (ARC, pg.3)
