So touching  Dec 2, 2008
I found this book very inspirational. What a touching story. What a great example of forgiveness.
Tonya and Tom Loved Castaway Kid  Sep 26, 2008
Castaway Kid: One Man's Search for Hope and Home (Focus on the Family Books)

This book is amazing. I work in a school with much racial, religious, financial and ethnic diversity. This book was the center of our summer reading program. Rob's life was such a great example for our children who face discrimination that they too can be successful regardless of what others say to them. In addition, my husband and I found things in the book we could relate to as well. My favorite part was Rob's argument with God.

It doesn't matter who you are or how you were raised, you will relate to some part of Rob's life. This is a book you will love and one you will want to share with everyone you know!!
Something we ALL can relate to  Sep 25, 2008
We were fortunate to have Mr. Mitchell visit our school after all of our students had read Castaway Kid as their summer reading assignment. His connection with our community was immediate and deep. All of us can relate to feeling abandoned at some point in our life. And in walks this gentle man who has every reason in the world to be hard and bitter. If God can give Rob Mitchell the courage to forgive, that same courage is certainly available to me!
Great all school book  Sep 19, 2008
We chose Castaway Kid as a book for our whole school (private 6-12 independent school) summer reading book. Our librarian and her committee chose it from a long list of possibiities. We were not disappointed in the choice. The students and adults found it a powerful and positive read. The Castaway Kid is not an easy story but students identifed with it in powerful and significant ways. Even if they were not orphaned, all could relate to the feelings of abandonment and isolation that seems part of growing up. We were doubly blessed because we convinced Mr. Mitchell to come to campus and speak at our academic convocation and parents' night. He is a wonderful speaker and it greatly enriched our community's experience. The whole community gave Mr. Mitchell and his story two thumbs up--way up!
Sue's Review of Castaway Kids  Jul 17, 2008
Many adults have suffered great hardships in their childhood, even being sent away. This now successful man had a horrible beginning. One can feel the isolation he felt when he was "dumped" off at the age of 3.
A good book to restore your belief that you can make your life different.
