Book Review: Amanda Knox

Book Review
Amanda Knox: Waiting to be Heard 
Amanda Knox 

Book Blurb:

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.

My Review: 
  I have been intrigued with the Amanda Knox case since it occurred. I have watched several documentary and news takes on her case. I was one that was for Amanda Knox and I really enjoyed hearing her side of the story and her journey through the court system of Italy. Amanda will forever carry this over her, I just hope society can forgive and forget this journey and allow this young lady to move on with life and achieve her dreams. This was an audio book.
