About The Day I was Erased by Lisa Thompson:

Maxwell is an 11-year-old boy who is always in trouble until he comes across a cabinet of curiosities and finds himself erased from his life, as if he’d never existed. It’s not long before Maxwell starts to miss his old life, and it becomes clear that he had more of an impact on those around him than he thought – is there a way to reverse what happened to him?
