"Not Our Kind"

Kitty Zeldis is the pseudonym for a novelist and non-fiction writer of books for adults and children. She lives with her family in Brooklyn, NY.

Zeldis applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, Not Our Kind, and reported the following:
On page 69 of Not Our Kind, Eleanor and Margaux have the first of their meetings and by lunch time, Margaux is already enchanted with her new tutor. This scene is key because it lays the groundwork for the strong bond that develops between teacher and student. This bond in turn affects the other relationships in the novel, like the one between Eleanor and Tom, and even importantly, between Eleanor and Patricia. Margaux does not have her own point of view in the novel, and yet she is the fulcrum for much of the action and is thematically linked to Eleanor as well.
