Publisher's Summary

"Sometimes I think everyone would be better off if I’d never existed in the first place." 

Nothing's going right for Maxwell Beckett. He's being blamed for his best friend's bloody nose - it was an accident! - his parents can't stop shouting at each other, and he just broke his neighbor's bright pink flamingo lawn ornament. So when Maxwell turns off the power in his school during a giant fundraiser, it's the last straw. He’s sure that now the whole town hates him. 

Maxwell is sick and tired of getting things wrong. He wishes he had never been born. And then...his wish comes true. 

He's been erased. 

Though Maxwell can walk through the world, nobody recognizes him. Even his own parents don't know him! Every impact he’s ever had on his town is gone. But the world might not actually be a better place without Maxwell in it. Can he find a way back in, or is it too late? 

With echoes of It’s a Wonderful Life, this is a humorous and poignant book about the positive impact each of us has on our community and on the people who love us.
