Description-

  • Amanda Knox spent four years in a foreign prison for a crime she did not commit, as seen in the Nexflix documentary Amanda Knox.

    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.

About the Author-

  • Amanda Knox is an exoneree and a writer in Seattle, Washington. She was wrongfully convicted of murder in Perugia, Italy, in 2009. In 2011 the conviction was overturned, and she was affirmatively found innocent of the charge of murder. In March 2013, the Italian Court of Cassation annulled the acquittal and ordered a new review of the case. Then in March 2015 Italy's high court overturned the previous convictions and ruled she was innocent. She now lives in Seattle, her hometown. She is committed to helping others who have been wrongfully convicted.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    July 29, 2013
    Amanda Knox, an American college student who was charged with the brutal murder of her roommate while studying in Italy, recounts her four years of imprisonment and the dizzying series of legal roadblocks to her eventual release in 2011. As the narrator of this audio edition, Knox sounds authentic, sincere, and vulnerable. In early portions of the narrative related to the crime scene and arrest, her emotions are muted, conveying the same deer-in-the-headlights reaction for which she was skewered in media coverage at the time. Yet, while recounting her experiences in prison after being convicted, when she grasped the gravity of the situation, Knox conveys her sense of desperation during a process in which the cards seemed hopelessly stacked against her. Her conversations with a sympathetic prison chaplain and with her deeply loyal family and close friends are especially moving. In her recitation of legal details, Knox falls into occasional lapses in pronunciation, but given the weight of the personal aspects of her performance, these flaws prove minor and don’t detract from the listening experience. A Harper hardcover.

  • Michiko Kakutani, New York Times "Meditative.... Evocative.... [Knox has] an ability to convey her emotions with considerable visceral power."
  • Entertainment Weekly "[T]he section on her prison years rivets. It's painful to see the smart, beautiful, incredibly naive exchange student of the first few pages turn hard and brittle as she navigates the labyrinthine Italian prison system."
