The Girl She Was - Rebecca Freeborn
Seventeen-year-old Layla was just like any other teenager in the small town of Glasswater Bay: she studied hard, went out drinking with her friends and worked at the local café. But when she started having a relationship with her older, married boss, everything changed.
Twenty years later she's living a quiet life in the suburbs with a husband and two children, a life far removed from the girl she was. Until she receives a text message: I know what you did.
For years she outran her past, turning away from the town and her friends. Now her past has caught up.
