Hi. My name's Faith and I'm living the London dream!
I work in a fabulous PR company, have loads of thin, glamorous friends but most of all, I have a perfect, handsome boyfriend. He never wants to watch the football and he always thinks I am the most beautiful girl in the world.
The only problem is that 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. I'm a single, lonely, low-paid, make-up girl and it's far too late to tell my family the depressing truth. Except that my sister's just got engaged, which means I've finally run out of reasons why my family can't meet my man...
Hi. My name's Faith and I have less than two months to turn my perfect fictional boyfriend into reality.
Wish me luck?
