No Alligators in Sight by Kirsten B. Feldman

indie ebook cover

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.


I wrote No Alligators in Sight over the last several years because the characters were tired of walking around in my head and wanted to get out into the world. While it's true that there is some overlap between my life and Lettie and her family's lives, for example I grew up in Provincetown, I have a brother, and I love to swim, their lives are their own. As the hands that typed Lettie's tales, I hope you enjoy her journey.


"I was seven when she left us. That was six years ago. I could iron by then, so I guess she thought I was set. My brother though, he was three. He has a heart-shaped birthmark right between his eyes. If that couldn’t keep her here, what could? She moved to Florida with a man who sucked his teeth. And that was that."

About The Author...

Kirsten B. Feldman

      

I grew up on Cape Cod and the Connecticut shoreline and now live outside of Boston, much too far from the ocean and the sand. Reading and writing have played a central part in my life both personally and professionally. I am rarely without a book in my hand. Brown University gave me my undergrad degree in comparative literature, and Tufts kindly did the same for my master's in English education. I have worked in a variety of school and museum education settings, including teaching 7th and 8th grade English. My graduate advisor once told me that if teenagers don't make you laugh then consider another career. To me the adolescent voice has such vibrancy and depth to it, whether funny or not; many of my favorite books have this point of view, including: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood. When I started writing No Alligators in Sight, it was unequivocally Lettie's voice that told me the story. May she speak to you as well!
