Publisher's Summary

Amanda Knox spent four years in a foreign prison for a crime she did not commit. In the fall of 2007, the 20-year-old college coed left Seattle to study abroad in Italy, but her life was shattered when her roommate was murdered in their apartment. After a controversial trial, Amanda was convicted and imprisoned. But in 2011, an appeals court overturned the decision and vacated the murder charge. Free at last, she returned home to the U.S., where she has remained silent, until now.
Filled with details first recorded in the journals Knox kept while in Italy, Waiting to Be Heard is a remarkable story of innocence, resilience, and courage, and of one young woman’s hard-fought battle to overcome injustice and win the freedom she deserved. With intelligence, grace, and candor, Amanda Knox tells the full story of her harrowing ordeal in Italy - a labyrinthine nightmare of crime and punishment, innocence and vindication - and of the unwavering support of family and friends who tirelessly worked to help her win her freedom.

A Fascinating Story- Buy it now!

I was a little hesitant to buy a book written by a young first-time writer, but Knox did an amazing job of pulling me through the entire story. The book was easy to follow; sure it's not a litterary marvel, but the author wrote well enough as to not detract from a truly fascinating story. I also liked the fact that Knox reads the book herself; it wouldn't feel right to have someone else telling us she's innocent.

I understand it's easy to be convinced of a person's innocence when you only hear one side of the story, but I've followed this case enough through the years that I already doubted her guilt. So many events in this book left me dumbfounded; sometimes at Amanda's immaturity and foolishness (like doing the splits while she waited in the police station to show an officer how flexible she was), but mostly at the Italian police and prosecutor. They appeared to be so fixed on hanging her that any and all evidence found was somehow twisted to indict her. If Knox is lying in this book, than she truly is a masterful writer because she doesn't come across as a schemer or overly complex person; either way this book is well worth the price of admission.

Without a doubt this has been the most difficult book to put down in recent memory. If you've been at all interested in this case you MUST listen to this book, but even if you haven't followed the saga you won't believe the way the story unfolds. I can't recommend it strong enough.

A very touching and revealing book! A must read

Amanda Knox is a courageous and incredible young woman. Her insights and eloquent ability to share with readers her very personal and painful struggles through this horrid tragedy has touched me deeply. I cried with her, I cried with her family and I ended this book wanting to salute and hug this young woman.The book, from start to finish captured my interest, ,
