1 comment

Back in Oct. 2013, Cleveland kidnapping survivors Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus signed a book deal to tell their story after being held captive for nearly a decade in Ariel Castro's House of Horrors.

This week, the cover for "Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland," which was written with the help of Pulitzer Prize-winning writers Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan, has been revealed. 

The book is slated for release on April 28.

The third victim, Michelle Knight, released a memoir of her own last year.
