Wellington, Oct 10 (ANI): The former teen, whom Roman Polanski was convicted of having sex with, is writing a memoir.

Samantha Geimer, now 47, has a deal with Atria Books for 'The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow of Roman Polanski.'

Atria, a Simon and Schuster imprint, announced on Tuesday that the book will come out next fall.

According to Atria, Geimer will provide "insight into many dimensions of the story that have never previously been revealed."

"I am more than 'Sex Victim Girl,' a tag the media pinned on me," Stuff.co.nz quoted Geimer as saying in a statement.

"My friends in junior high, scolded by their parents to stay away from that girl, also labelled me.

"I offer my story now without rage, but with purpose - to share a tale that in its detail will reclaim my identity. I have been dogged by tired thinking and easy tags nearly my entire life. I am not a stick figure. I know what it is like to be a woman and a victim in the realest possible way," she said.

Geimer's attorney, Lawrence Silver, will contribute to the book, adding "his insights on the many fascinating and even shocking legal aspects of the story."

Polanski was accused of plying Geimer with champagne and part of a Quaalude during a 1977 modelling shoot at Jack Nicholson's house and raping her.

He was initially indicted on six felony counts, including rape by use of drugs, child molesting and sodomy, but pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse. (ANI)
