This time, let's talk about My Invisible Boyfriend by Susie Day (2010).
A hilarious novel about the ultimate high school hoax gone wrong - Heidi invents a boyfriend only to find that her fake Romeo is suddenly more popular than she is!
Heidi has the perfect solution to her popularity problems - a fake boyfriend. She's even made him an Internet profile that makes him look like a motorcycle-riding, poetry reading bad boy. *swoon* Heidi's friends are so impressed they start emailing Heidi's fake boyfriend with their problems . . . including their problems with Heidi.
As if that weren't bad enough, a delicious and possibly single person called "A Real Boy" emails Heidi to say he knows the truth.
Can Heidi escape from her world wide web of lies?
Or will her chance at romance disappear faster than you can type gtg?

This is definitely a more recent throwback. 2010 doesn't seem that long ago, but it definitely feels like it's been a while since I read My Invisible Boyfriend. Although not many people have praised this one like I have, I still think it's a cute, worthwhile read. Day is funny, and her characters were lighthearted and enjoyable. As far as chick lit goes, this one is an under-appreciated book.
