Castaway Kid is the moving account of one man’s search for a “real” family. It’s also a book of hope—hope for anyone who wants to overcome the hurts of childhood or of present circumstances.

Sharing hurts, hopes, and opinions in a group can make the Castaway Kid experience even more constructive. Take, for example, a class of firefighters who were studying leadership. Wrestling with the question of whether leaders are born or developed, they discussed Rob Mitchell’s story as part of that process. Their verdict: It was the most meaningful discussion they’d had all year.
Men’s groups, women’s groups, youth groups, inside and outside a church setting—all can benefit from talking about Rob’s path to forgiveness and healing. Castaway Kid makes an ideal discussion starter for high school English classes, teen groups, adult support and recovery groups, Sunday school classes, and book clubs.
“Together we can change lives,” Rob Mitchell says. That change can begin in your group as you reflect on this inspiring, insightful story.
