Amanda Knox has deal with HarperCollins for memoir



NEW YORK (AP) — Amanda Knox has a book deal.

The young exchange student whose conviction and eventual acquittal of murder charges made headlines worldwide has an agreement with HarperCollins to tell her story.

The 24-year-old Seattle resident, imprisoned for four years in Perugia, Italy, has not publicly discussed her ordeal beyond a brief expression of gratitude upon her release last October.

The book, currently untitled, is tentatively scheduled for early 2013.
