The Souls of Her Feet


The Souls of Her Feet

by Kristen Caven
(Little Pig Productions, 2013; Uplift Press 2015, 2019)

Part One of the Fairytale Reality Project

In this colorful and quirky crossover novel, Kristen Caven reimagines Cinderella as a middle American teenager with body image issues. This sweet and slightly twisted version of the beloved fairytale bubbles with amusing character interpretations and emotionally resonant plot twists. The Souls of Her Feet will inspire moms (and dads) into new conversations with their daughters (and sons) about responsibility, being passive or assertive, morality, waste, life choices, cross-dressing, and best of all, 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 a gay uncle figure would magically appear and affirm her personal sensibility in a world of clutter and materialism?) When she finally gets to the prom, wearing just the right shoes, Ashley feels transformed and finally seen for who she is inside. A campy adventure of assisted self-rescue from a childhood gone wrong.
This new (4th) edition contains bonus materials such as essays by the main characters and songs from the musical.

  1. Kristen Caven is incredible! The Souls of Her Feet was a joy to read. I felt young again, and excited about love after reading. It inspired me to create a clown show based on the book so enough said there. Watch out world for this talented woman!
