Amanda Knox’s book on her ordeal in Perugia, Italy, won’t be out until April next year, but the book cover is…

Publisher HarperCollins has released a photo of the cover showing Knox, who’s now 25, looking solemn and straight ahead.

Knox and her one-time Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted in an Italian court in the 2007 stabbing death of Knox’s British roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia. The convictions were overturned on appeal a little more than a year ago, but not before Knox and Sollecito had spent four years in Italian prisons.

Knox, a Seattle native and former University of Washington student, was in Italy on an exchange program when Kercher was killed.

She returned to Seattle in October of last year and has been writing her memoir during that time .

The book is being released two months later than originally planned out of deference to the court in Italy that scheduled a March 25 hearing for the prosecution’s appeal of Knox’s acquittal in Kercher’s murder.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
