Excerpts from a new book provide a glimpse into Amanda Knox's life "in limbo"—otherwise known as an Italian prison. The as-yet released book, Take Me With You, chronicles the convicted killer's life behind bars and her hopes for the future. "I miss my family. I have friends who are like brothers and sisters to me," the author, Rocco Girlanda, quotes Knox as saying. "I want to live."

The excerpt includes meditations on fame, the Independent notes. "Everybody tells me, 'You're famous.' I answer, 'I'm not Angelina Jolie!' How ugly to be famous for this. I would have preferred to be for something I built, I achieved," Knox reportedly said. There are signs, too, of contrition: "I know I have not always been understandable," she told Girlanda.
