Synopsis

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.

Waiting to Be Heard includes 24 pages of color photographs.

    Waiting to be heard

    Reading this book makes me concerned about my daughters' going to Italy. The conduct of the Italian police as detailed here and confirmed by the highest Italian court, by female and male officers was shoddy and based on nothing but hunches. The prosecutor was worse: changing contradictory theories that trial courts did nothing to confront. What an appalling legal system.

    This book was a page turner. Even if you watched Amanda's trial unfold on TV, I think after reading this you might change your mind about her conviction. This is told first hand from her about what Happened to her roommate in Italy.

    Waiting to be Heard

    A good read. It was slow getting started due to all the background information required to put in context Meredith's murder and Amanda's state of mind. There is a lot of information to process so I recommend reading this book more than once, as well Google articles about the case.

    Waiting to be Heard

    Hard to believe that witch hunts like this still happen in this century. But they are still the case more often than we like to think. This is a very courageous young woman!

    Interesting and informative read

    I found Amanda's Book extremely well written and a interesting read. I have a daughter in her early twenties who is living and studying in central Europe and I found her book extremely informative and would be extremely involved if my daughter had problems while living in Europe.
