Unbreakable

by Jenni Rivera

Jenni Rivera was a talented and beloved Mexican American singer in the male-dominated banda and norteño music scene who died in a tragic plane crash in December 2012. She had been working on her memoir, Unbreakable, for several years. Jenni Rivera was a mother of five, grandmother of two, singer-songwriter, actress, television producer, star of her own reality show, and entrepreneur. Hers was a life of trauma, tragedy, personal battles, perseverance, and extreme success. She became the most successful Spanish-language singer in the United States and had sold more than 15 million records worldwide. She had signed to star in an ABC television sitcom just before her death. Constantly in the media, Jenni's personal matters were at the center of many news stories that exposed her less-than-perfect-life; Jenni made it her mission to speak openly about her issues, building intimacy and trust with her fans. Consequently, she became a figure of strength and resilience and served as a source of encouragement to women of all ages. In Unbreakable, the late singer's only authorized autobiography, Jenni takes the reader back to the crucial times in her life, revealing the difficulties and struggles she has never discussed publicly. She writes candidly about her experiences with domestic and sexual abuse, divorce and body image issues, making her way in a male-dominated industry, and raising five children as a single mother. As she tells her inspirational story of hardship and triumph, it becomes clear that Jenni will always be the "Rivera rebel from Long Beach," the girl who never lost her sense of humor, her positivity, or her fighting spirit. "I can't get caught up in the negative because that destroys you. Perhaps trying to move away from my problems and focus on the positive is the best I can do. I am a woman like any other and ugly things happen to me like any other woman. The number of times I have fallen down is the number of times I have gotten up." --Jenni Rivera
