Product description

We have chosen The Day I Was Erased as our XD Book of the Month for March: the third moving and powerful novel by the author of The Goldfish Boy. It follows Max – a misfit and bully, the kid who can’t seem to do anything right – who gets an unexpected new start when he’s transported into a different life. Mixing fantasy elements into a real-life setting, this book asks penetrating questions about the choices we make and the people we choose to be. It gives children a compassionate look at what it’s like to be the ‘bad kid’, while telling an irresistible story with insight and wit. Lisa Thompson is fast becoming a major name in realistic children’s fiction. The Goldfish Boy was a Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month and the second biggest selling debut novel of 2017, while her second book The Light Jar returned to the topic of a traumatised child. Exploring tough subjects with an accessible lightness of touch, her books cover similar ground to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, but for confident younger readers.

  • A touching tale of friendship, family and growing up
  • By the author of The Goldfish Boy and The Light Jar
  • The Goldfish Boy was 2017’s second bestselling debut
  • It was also shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Prize 2018
