Catherine is sweet, caring, adventurous, vivacious, smart and fun. As the baby of the family, she made her first attempt to outshine her big sister by auditioning for the lead in her school’s play.
Catherine is heartbroken whenever she discovers that she didn’t get the part. Like many girls, she finds an escape by trying on shoes, and is pleasantly surprised to realize a valuable life lesson in her “sole.”
Excerpt from Empty Shoes written by Denise LaRosa), illustrated by Nicholas Manning:

Hmmmm maybe I can try them all on and be someone else, if even for a minute.
“It might be fun to walk in someone else’s shoes,” I said.
