Amanda Knox's memoir hits bookstores and E-readers on April 30, 2013.

HarperCollins announced the official date and title of her new memoir this week.

Knox and her ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted of the murder in 2009, but released on appeal last year. Knox is now home in Seattle with her family. Italian prosecutors have filed an appeal to overturn her appeal. She is still waiting for an official ruling.

Sollecito released his own memoir in September.

HarperCollins announced Knox's memoir in February, stating that "For the very first time since her trial for murder, her four-year incarceration in Perugia, Italy, and her appeal and acquittal of all charges, Amanda Knox will share the truth about her terrifying ordeal."

The publisher says the book will be partly based on journals Knox kept throughout her "harrowing experience."

ABC News reported earlier this year that Knox would get $4 million dollars for the book deal.
