Amanda Knox’s upcoming memoir has a title, a cover design and a new publication date.

HarperCollins announced today that the book is titled “Waiting to be Heard.” It will come out April 30, two months later than originally scheduled. The date was changed out of deference to the court in Italy that scheduled a March 25 hearing for the prosecution’s appeal of the former exchange student’s acquittal in the 2007 murder of her British roommate.

The 25-year-old Knox returned to her Seattle just about a year ago after spending four years in a Perugia, Italy jail. Her ordeal made international headlines and her book deal, announced in February, was reportedly worth $4 million.

The cover features a close-up of an intense, unsmiling Knox. The picture was taken earlier this year.

Raffaele Sollecito, who was briefly Knox’s boyfriend in Italy and was convicted along with her in the stabbing death of Meredith Kerchner, also wrote about his ordeal in a book published earlier this year: “Presumed Guilty: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox.”

Knox and Sollecito were imprisoned for years awaiting trial in Kercher’s slaying and were eventually found guilty. They were released late last year when those convictions were overturned on appeal.
