The book, called Waiting to be Heard, will hit stores on April 30, 2013. The cover will feature Knox’s intense, unsmiling face.

Knox was convicted of murdering her roommate, Meredith Kercher, while studying abroad in Italy in 2007. She served four years in prison in Perugia, Italy, before being acquitted last year. He trial, imprisonment, and release became a media sensation and stoked international controversy. The book deal, which was announced in February, was reportedly worth $4 million.

Waiting to be Heard was originally scheduled for a February release, but was pushed back due to a March 25 hearing in the prosecution’s appeal of Knox’ acquittal.
