lying kids

My daughter is 11 I just found out she told some kids at school that she was having heart surgery and that her dad died. Which neither is true. Her dad hasn't been in her life for a long time and I know that bothers her. I'm just wondering does anyone's kids do this and why and is this normal. I'm going to talk to a therapist.

Yes, kids make up stories to be liked and noticed. She's trying to fit in with her friends or make new ones. I know I told some interesting ones as a child but they didn't harm anyone.
Maybe saying her Dad died is the easiest way of dealing with questions from other children about why she doesn't see him.
