Giveaway and Guest Post: No Alligators in Sight by Kirsten Feldman

No Alligators in Sight by Kirsten Feldman
In this coming of age novel, Lettie and Bert squeak by in a tiny town on Cape Cod, one parent an alcoholic and the other absent. After a string of bad decisions on Lettie’s part, their father ships them to their barely remembered mother for the summer, where they will learn hard lessons about themselves, their family, and their future by way of the Florida swamp. Throughout Lettie keeps her biting humor flowing, her razor-sharp pen at the ready, and her eye on her quest for a “normal” life.
A quick visit with Kirsten Feldman, author of No Alligators in Sight
What is one thing you would tell your 15-year-old self?
Sometimes the things that seem most important, like your friends at that moment, turn out to not be important at all in your life later, and the things that just seem like a drag, like your family, turn out to be everything.

Is there anything else you want to add or say to your readers?
Reading can help you figure out what’s important in your life.  Books take you away to every corner of the world that you might otherwise never see.  I hope my book gives a window into a life maybe different from yours in huge ways or maybe small, but a life worth investigating, just like yours.

    Oh, I think Courtney is going to review this for the blog. It looks good. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I like that she says books can help you find what you want in life. I think that's so true!

  4. I loved the funny little interview there! I'm very much a summer person too, although ninjas win out in comparison to pirates for me ;)
