Publisher's Weekly

Mitchell is a respected financial consultant and a dedicated youth advocate, but what's not well known is that he had a tumultuous childhood. His memoir reveals his life in an orphanage after his mother abandoned him at age 3, as well as his struggle to find love and acceptance and learn to trust. Mitchell knew his mentally ill mother, who once kidnapped him from the orphanage, but had no real memories of his father, who attempted suicide but ended up brain damaged. His maternal grandmother was the boy's anchor, but she couldn't raise him, which only added to his confusion. He teetered on the edge of disaster as he matured, but at age 17 he prayed, "Jesus, if You are real, come into my nightmare. Forgive me of my sins and change me." Mitchell's story is inspiring both for its spiritual dimension and its conventional Horatio Alger narrative. The facts of his case are also verifiably true, which Mitchell and the publisher take pains to ensure in part through the Web site www.amillionlittleproofs.com, which offers .pdf versions of documents from Mitchell's past. His memoir will appeal to adults with difficult pasts, those who work with troubled kids and anyone who revels in seeing God change a life. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

    My son seems to be enjoying his new Bible. He really likes the parts where he can look up gross things that happened in the Bible.

    This is an honest account of the author's search for love and acceptance. It is so heart-wrenching to learn how his mother could abandon him in such a way, yet this true story is a great reminder of how our lives can change for the better, regardless of our background, if we set our minds to it and if we depend on God as our Guide.

    The writing style makes this book an easy read. It could be improved, stylistically, but this is more of a personal choice.

    Overall, this is a great story full of hope which left me feeling thankful and encouraged about my future.
