Waiting to Be Heard by Amanda Knox


Reviewed by Emi Weiss (Library Staff)

Amanda Knox was a 20 year old study abroad student in Italy when her room mate was murdered. An over eager, malicious prosecutor charged Amanda and her boyfriend with the murder. Despite clear forensic evidence, Amanda was incarcerated in Italy for four years for a heinous crime she did not commit. She was also the subject of negative and positive press during her ordeal. In this memoir, she carefully recounts her side of the saga. I recommend this book as it lends insight into a quirky, immature girl who quickly learned to be a woman under the most tortuous of circumstances. Plus, it reinforces an ideal I hold dear: don’t answer authorities questions until you have a lawyer!
