The world is about to hear the harrowing ordeal that Amanda Knox went through, in her own words.

The Seattle native's memoir, Waiting to Be Heard, is set to be released on April 30 and details her arrest, conviction, and subsequent 2011 acquittal for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher.

Knox reveals that she "contemplated suicide" during her four year stint in an Italian prison but says that her family and then-boyfriend Rafaele Sollecito, who was also charged with murder, helped her get through the trying times.

The 25-year-old hopes that the book will set the record straight and as well as help the family of her former 21-year-old British roommate.

"Her father thinks I'm the killer of his daughter, and that's painful," she told People.

"I really hope they read my book."
