In October 2007, twenty year old Amanda Knox, a college student from Seattle, moved to Perugia, Italy to study abroad. That November, one of her roommates, British student Meredith Kercher, was murdered in their apartment. Amanda was arrested for the murder, and a media firestorm erupted around her. The subsequent investigation and legal proceedings exposed her to international scrutiny and speculation and she became a tabloid staple. After an extremely controversial trial, she was convicted in 2009. But in October 2011, after Amanda spent four years in an Italian prison and following a lengthy appeals process, the conviction was overturned. Amanda immediately returned home to the U.S.  For the very first time since her trial for murder, her four-year incarceration in Italy, and her appeal and acquittal of all charges, Amanda Knox will share the truth about her terrifying ordeal. With grace and maturity, Amanda will describe the aftermath of the ordeal and her return to the States, as well as her hopes for the future.
