To say that Emily Calby’s sweet sixteen birthday was far from normal would be the understatement of the year. On her sixteenth birthday, she got arrested for carrying an illegal weapon. As she lived anonymously under a fake name, this arrest threatened her true identity being revealed to the world. As a murder charge got added to her original charges, her anonymous life should have been the least of her concerns. Soon, she found herself behind bars in a juvenile prison. Any hope she had of having an easy trial evaporated the moment she came face to face with Leslie, vindictive prosecutor hellbent on getting the “little gutter rat” (Emily Calby) thrown into an adult prison for life. The second book in the Emily Calby series, The Girl in Cell 49B by Dorian Box is the gripping tale of a sixteen-year-old who, like a phoenix from the ashes, rises from her anger issues and guilt of the past. But would she survive the law that has many exceptions attached to each rule?
