Whether you believe Amanda Knox is guilty or not guilty of killing her college roommate in Italy six years ago, her soon to be released memoir, Waiting To Be Heard, should answer some of the questions the public has.
On November 2, 2007, Amanda’s roommate, Meredith Kercher, was found with her throat slit in the villa they shared in Perugia, Italy. Amanda, her boyfriend, and a third person were convicted of the murder. Two years later, the conviction was overturned. Just this past March, however, Italy’s higher court overturned the acquittal and has ordered a new trial.
Amanda has always maintained her innocence and admits contemplating suicide and fending off unwanted attention from her guards in the Italian prison. She hopes Meredith’s family reads the book as it is all about “setting the record straight”.
Amanda is currently attending school in Seattle and dating an old friend who wrote her letters while she was in prison.
The Cheshire Public Library has the book on order and it should be arriving soon. You may place a hold on it at this time.
