Overview

Unbreakable: My Story, My Way by Jenni Rivera

A New York Times bestseller, this is the official biography from the beloved Mexican-American singer who lost her life in a tragic plane crash.

The only autobiography authorized by Jenni Rivera

"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."

These are the last words that beloved Mexican American singer Jenni Rivera spoke publicly before boarding the plane that would crash and cut her life short on December 9, 2012. However, they are not the final words that La Diva de la Banda had for the world. Those are found in the pages you hold in your hands, Jenni’s own account of the highs and lows of her extraordinary journey.

She became the most acclaimed Spanish-language singer in the United States and sold more than 15 million records worldwide. A single mother of five and grandmother of two, she was also an actress, a television producer, the star of her own reality show, and an entrepreneur. But for all its immense success, Jenni’s life often seemed to be a series of personal battles in which perseverance was her only weapon. As her fame grew, she made it her mission to speak about her struggles, forging an intimate connection with her fans. She became a figure of strength and a source of encouragement to women of all ages.

In Unbreakable, Jenni recounts the crucial moments in her past, revealing her experiences with domestic and sexual abuse, divorce, body image issues, making her way in a male-dominated industry, raising her children as a single mother, and learning that she could depend only on herself.

Though she is no longer with us, Jenni will always be the "Rivera rebel from Long Beach," the girl who maintained her sense of humor and fighting spirit in every circumstance. In this remarkable memoir, Jenni leaves behind a legacy of inspiration and determination that will forever live on through her precious family, friends, and fans.

great book, i finished it in 2 days..it was that good. the only reason i did not give it 5 stars, was that the last chapter didnt give the details on why she divorced Esteban. On all the media interviews she always said that the book will say the reason of her divorce and it did not. Im pretty sure Jenni did write the last chapter and gave details  but Rosie obviously must have edited that part out. Other than that it is a must read

This was such an amazing book. I literally devoured this boook because I could put it down. It was that good. I'm a fan of Jenni's and reading this, it makes me happy that I becameher fan. Despite her flaws and hardships, she was a beautiful woman who got up even when hope seemed impossible. She was such a passionate, strong, and caring woman. She definetely did turned a negative into a positive. She deserved the recognition that she received because she really did work hard and endured a lot. What I like about Jenni is her bluntness and realness. She was never superficial, she wasn't those singers who were fake and changed their music and slept their way to the top to please the media like so many artists do nowadays. No, Jenni made it, even if it took her a long time, she still made it without losing herself. She was still herself, despite her astounding fame. She kept herself level-headed and grounded and never let it get to her head. She was a regular person who endured so much, whether it was negative or positive. Reading her story made me believe that she was here for a reason, that God had a mission for her, and she achieved that mission despite the suffering she had to go through. It was unfortunate that she passed away the way she did after all that she went through in her life. I only hope that she is no longer suffering and is at peace. This story is so powerful and probably one of the best autobiographies of a singer. It will make you angry, laugh, cry, happy, but most importantly, love Jenni for the way she was. Jenni showed us that life may not be perfect, but it's always good to stay true to yourself and always keep your head afloat even if you feel like sinking. Jenni also showed us that even when times get dark, you should never give up on your dreams. That is the legacy Jenni left and it will always be remembered. So I recommend this book. Even if you are not a Jenni fan, read it, because it will make you one for life and that's a beautiful thing.

Such an awesome book to read. I read it in one day less then 24 hours, that is how good it was. Chapter 1 set the mood for the book and gave you a look into how deep and powerful the rest of the book would be. Anyone that is a fan of Jenni Rivera must read it. And if you are not a fan also read it.  Jenni Rivera was a Mexican singer who came from humble beginnings. Her parents were illegal immigrants who came to this country in the 60's. They settled in Long Beach, California. Jenni Rivera was one of five children. Jenni Rivera overcame becoming a teen mom at the age of 16, domestic abuse from her first husband, rape, money issues, scandal  after being la reina de la banda. Jenni Rivera passed away tragically after her plane went down, killing everyone on board.  After reading her story it gives you a look into who she really was and what she did in this world.

It is definitely the BEST autobiography I have read. Jenni Rivera kept it real when writing this book, it was so her! The hard things she went through were so sad but motivational at the same time. She made me laugh, and i really have never laughed out loud when reading a book, but this time it happened! I was also in tears towards the end... I loved it. I read on my day off the whole day, couldn't stop flipping pages. Miss you diva!!!

Story of Jenni has helped many you abused women to seek help. Many things that we did not know about her came to light. She was a unique person. Onlything is this book feels like it left me at a cliff hanger and she still had more to say. May she rest in peace.

Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. She was a very misunderstood woman. I feel inspired by her strength and never giving up. I was hoping to have read about her decision to divorce her last husband, but I guess she was still legally married and was not finalized.

This is truly my favorite book. The best book I've ever read I can somehow relate to Jenny because I like her got pregnant at 14 years old and was abused by that individual. Her stories made me cry and laugh love her sense of humor. Despite everything she went through she is a true warrior. I Pray to God you are now resting in Peace Mariposa De Barrio. We your fans love you 4 ever and viviras para siempre en nuestros corazones Reyna De Long Beach :)  Your book has inspired and motivated me to do something with my life and everything is possible with hard work and dedication
