The Girlfriend Act

A novel by

To achieve her lifelong dream, Farah needs to pretend she’s in love.

How hard could it be ...?

When aspiring actress Farah Sheikh accidentally goes viral for exposing a prejudiced theatre company, she decides to put on her own production with the Tragedies - a group of theatre kids who are similarly desperate to break into the industry.

They have the crew, all they need now is a stage ... and money.

Enter former superstar Zayan Amin.

The deal? Zayan will star in and fund the Tragedies’ play, in exchange for a publicity boost generated by a new and (fake) romance with Farah.

There’s just one problem: they can’t stand each other...

Genre: Young Adult Romance
