PRE-ORDER MICHELLE'S BOOK ON AMAZON!!!



 

"Michelle Knight, the first of the three women abducted by notorious Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro, recounts the full story of her years in captivity, her escape, and the powerful inner strength and capacity for hope that has helped her rebuild her life.


Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a local school bus driver named Ariel Castro. For more than a decade afterward, she endured unimaginable torture at the hand of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity, followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape on May 6, 2013, made headlines around the world.


Barely out of her own tumultuous childhood, Michelle was estranged from her family and fighting for custody of her young son when she disappeared. Local police believed she had run away, so they removed her from the missing persons lists fifteen months after she vanished. Castro tormented her with these facts, reminding her that no one was looking for her, that the outside world had forgotten her. But Michelle would not be broken.


In Finding Me, Michelle will reveal the heartbreaking details of her story, including the thoughts and prayers that helped her find courage to endure her unimaginable circumstances and now build a life worth living. By sharing both her past and her efforts to create a future, Michelle becomes a voice for the voiceless and a powerful symbol of hope for the thousands of children and young adults who go missing every year"




ORIGINAL POST (11/25/14):

NEW YORK (AP) — One of three young women held captive for years in a Cleveland house has a book deal.

 

 

Michelle Knight's memoir is scheduled to come out next spring, publisher Weinstein Books announced Monday. The book is currently untitled and will be co-written by Michelle Burford, who worked on Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas' memoir.

 

 

"I want to give every victim of violence a new outlook on life," Knight said in a statement provided to The Associated Press by the publisher. "Victims need to know that no matter how hard it rains in the darkness, they will have the strength and courage that God gave them when they were born to rise above and overcome any obstacle that stands in their way."

 

According to Weinstein, Knight will tell the "full story" of being kidnapped in her early 20s by Ariel Castro and held for 11 years. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus finally escaped last May. Castro, sentenced to life plus 1,000 years, hanged himself in his cell in September.

 

 

Berry and DeJesus are planning their own book, collaborating with a pair of Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters, Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan.
