Isabel Davies | 3 comments Hi all, I'm hoping you can help me!

-I think I read this book around 10-15 years ago, so around the early 2000s.
-The book was about a young woman who had been released from prison/youth detention and assumed a different name as when she was younger she had murdered another girl. I have a feeling when she killed the girl she hit her on the back of the head or something with a spade near some sort of quarry/somewhere remote. As a young woman, she was debating about telling the guy she was seeing about her past.
-I read it in paperback form.
-I think it was primarily targeted at a YA audience
-I am pretty sure the title of the book was two words (one of them possibly the young woman's name as a child?)
-I'd say it's a mystery and a thriller, because for a while you don't realise the young woman is the same person as the child killer.

Thanks in advance!

I'm almost certain it was set in the USA. The cover I think just had a picture of a stick-person (girl) on the front with the title, very minimalist.
