Much has already been written about Amanda Knox: sensational international tabloid stories dubbing her “Foxy Knoxy”; numerous books examining the trial wherein Knox stood accused of murdering Meredith Kercher, her English roommate, while she was studying abroad in Perugia, Italy; a sympathetic tell-all written by her ex-boyfriend, another among the accused; and even a Lifetime movie. But amid the clamoring din, Knox pieced together her defense, not only against the murder accusation and 2009 conviction but also her condemnation in the court of public opinion. Drawing from journals, letters, court testimony, and other written records, Knox recounts how the trip abroad she thought would help her grow up became a kind of nightmare coming-of-age in which she was violently stripped of her naiveté and forced to confront her misplaced trust in Perugian officials. She also addresses actions she regrets, including the false accusation she leveled against her former boss. In clear, concise language, Knox offers the definitive story of her trial thus far. However, the saga continues. As of March 2013, her 2011 acquittal had been overturned by Italy’s highest criminal court. Required reading for those who can’t get enough of this headline-grabbing saga. --Courtney Jones
“Meditative.... Evocative.... [Knox has] an ability to convey her emotions with considerable visceral power.” (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times)
“[T]he 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)
“A raw and dramatic account of her lost years.” (People)

It's hard to make a decision with Knox. I happened to read this when the case was briefly opened back up. I won't spoil the ending if you have no idea about Amanda Knox, but this book really paints an interesting picture of both sides of the spectrum. It's from her voice, so obviously she professes innocence. The Italians are out to get her. Yet, there are a lot of people that think she is guilty. Lots of signs point to guilt, lots point to innocence. Evidence is tampered with, yet some of it isn't. Circumstantial. Alibis. Inappropriate kissing. Awkward interviews.
Though the book is the thickness of a dictionary, it was a pretty fast read and a good one.
