The Day I Was Erased
This is an amazing story which we just couldn’t put down. We liked Maxwell from the start and thought he was having a very tough time, Mum and Dad fighting, acting out in school and only his beloved dog Monster for company. When things come to a head and Maxwell ruins the school ball the story takes on a super exciting feel and we really started to wonder ‘will everything work out in the end?’
The characters have very distinct personalities and all play a big part in Maxwell’s adventure. There are historical references and you can see how easy it would be for life to be different if just some little thing changed.
We laughed out loud at points and there were definitely a few tears and this book gave us a lot to chat and think about. We would highly recommend this to children aged 8+.
