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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Knox] spent a lot of time in prison writing journals, poems, stories, letters, even lists of what she would do with her life (i.e., things she would do if she got out immediately, or things she would do if she were 46 when she were released). All that practice and all that introspection have given her an ability to convey her emotions with considerable visceral power—the shock of feeling the supremely ordinary morph into the utterly surreal, the vulnerability of being on trial in a foreign country in a language she had not completely mastered, the isolation of being in prison and at the center of a swirling media storm.” New York Times
“The 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.” Entertainment Weekly

Story

Finally! Her side of the story in her own words!

I definitely waited to hear her side of the story, since the media was all over the place reporting about it. I already listened to Rafaele Solecito's book and was excited to listen to Amanda's as well.

She gives us her perspective in her own voice, which carries more emotion that I would have expected. The story is well rounded and it makes me think that she really isn't guilty. But then again... it is her story. :)
