…a book, a musical, and so much more!

In this colorful and quirky crossover novel, Kristen Caven reimagines Cinderella as a middle-American teenager with body image issues as well as the usual step-problem. This sweetly twisted version of the beloved fairytale bubbles with fresh character interpretations, emotionally resonant plot points and laugh-out-loud allusions to the story everyone knows. The Souls of Her Feet will inspire family conversations about responsibility, being passive or assertive, morality, waste, life choices, cross-dressing, and most importantly…cleaning house!

Caven’s postmodern, self-aware emotional fantasy gives the fairy godmother a meaningful relationship with Ashley’s lost parents. (And what teenage girl doesn’t wish an uncle figure with aesthetic sensibilities would magically appear to save her from a world of tacky clutter and materialism?) When she finally gets to the prom, wearing just the right shoes, the transformed finally Ashley feels seen for who she is inside. A campy adventure of soul-love and assisted self-rescue from a childhood gone all wrong.

This new (4th) edition contains bonus materials such as essays by the main characters and songs from the musical.
