Should Amanda Knox sell her story?
Amanda Knox, the 24 year old American exchange student who – with her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito – was convicted of murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher in Italy four years ago, was acquitted on Monday. Arriving home to Seattle on Tuesday, the media buzz surrounding her story is huge.
The question being asked all around the world is – will she sell her story? I think it’s safe to assume she will, and if you ask me, the real question is why shouldn’t she? It is her story to tell. So many have already profited off of it — why shouldn’t the person that lived through it get some credit? Her parents went into massive debt funding her defense, so it would seem unlikely that she would refuse a huge book deal cash advance that would help pay the debt off.
I know I’d be interested in hearing what she has to say.
