    Amanda Knox on Her Revealing New Book: "It Was Very Important to Me to Be Honest"

    Amanda Knox continues to open up about the ordeal surrounding the death of her roommate Meredith Kercher.

    One day after her interview with Diane Sawyer aired, the 25-year-old appeared live on Wednesday's Good Morning America, where she told cohost Robin Roberts she is "doing great."

    This, despite the fact that an Italian Supreme Court ruled last month that she must stand trial again for Kercher's murder. Knox had been acquitted after serving four years in prison.

    "I'm doing great and it's incredible to feel that again because I felt so stunted and so limited and so hated for so long," Knox said.

    Meanwhile, Knox's book, Waiting to Be Heard, was released on Tuesday.

    "I wanted people to know who I was because I felt that I was lost in the middle of this storm and I was taken over," she said about her decision to put pen to paper, adding, "It was very important to me to be honest. There's no use to me writing this if I wasn't completely honest and completely bare."

    Roberts noted, however, that Kercher's family has stated they will not be reading it. Knox is hoping they have a change of heart.

    "Meredith Kercher died and her family deserves answers, and the prosecution didn't give them that," she said. "I want them to be able to come away with my perspective, because they're seeking answers and they deserve to have answers, and I give every answer that I can in my book. It's the first way that I can reach out to them, and I really hope that we can connect one day."
