Hi. My name's Faith and I have less than two months to solve my boyfriend's non-existence problem in time for my sister's wedding. Wish me luck?

Synopsis

The Make-Up Girl by Andrea Semple

Hi. My name's Faith and I'm living the London dream. I work in a fabulous PR company, have tons of thin, glamorous friends (not quite as glamorous as I am, obv) and especially I have the perfect, handsome boyfriend. He never wants to watch the football. He never gets drunk. And he always prefers a quiet night in to going out with his mates. The only problem is that, well, he doesn't exist. I made him up, just like I made up my perfect life and my perfect job. It's what I do, you see, I'm a make-up girl in Keats cosmetics. I have a scary mother and one thing just led to another - it was easier not to tell her the depressing truth. The thing is, I also have a sister and she's just got engaged...
