"I can't get caught up in the negative because that destroys you. Perhaps trying to move away from my.

    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. However, they are not the final words that La Diva de la Banda had for the world. 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. 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.

    I picked up my things and walked out of the club with Rosie and Gladyz. I was in a bit of a rush because they were both still in high school, and this was a school night. I was never one to have many friends, especially since Juan scared many of them away with his temper and his rude behavior. Now that he was incarcerated, I was a loner. Hanging out with the girls was fun and helped keep me busy until his release. It was only Once I made sure Rosie was in the house, I turned up the music and began the drive back home.

    I was living in beautiful, gangsteriffic Compton. Being a Realtor, I had bought a house there as an investment and decided to live in it for a while. As I exited right onto Central Avenue, I noticed the car behind me flashing its high beams. It got closer and closer as I slowed down to see if I knew who it was.

    The driver flashed his high beams again. What the fuck? Was I driving too slow? Did I forget to turn on my signal? Suddenly, the car sped up alongside my green Ford Explorer, purposely trying to sideswipe me. I sped up, hoping that they were just messing around with me. They would drive behind me, then speed up and try to run me off the road and into the parked cars on Central Avenue.

    What the hell am I going to do? I was living alone with my three young children.

    Our house had been broken into just two months earlier, and everything had been stolen. All of this was running through my mind as I kept driving around the block, hoping these guys would magically disappear. My whole body was shaking. Finally, I stopped close to my house, though not in front of it. How foolish. Their car stopped behind me and I could see that the men were ready to step out.

    I decided that I would make a run for it. I would run as fast as I could, the way my brothers had taught me to when we played baseball as kids.

    I opened my car door and started sprinting in my high heels, screaming at the top of my lungs. I did not look back. I could hear the sound of their boots running after me.

    I ran, I screamed louder. I cried. I prayed that someone would hear me. If they did, nobody came to my rescue. The boot steps were gaining on me. My high heels were slowing me down. Suddenly I felt two pairs of strong arms grab me. I had been caught. I tried to fight back. I kicked and screamed. I was the gangsta bitch from Long Beach. The Rivera rebel who never lost a fight.

    But I was outnumbered. One man had stayed in the car. One covered my mouth with his huge hand. One dragged me by the hair and pulled at my arms until I was thrown in the backseat of the car. The prominent chin. The man from the club. He raped me in the backseat of the vehicle. Over and over he repeated the words I had said to him at the club: Leave me the fuck alone.

    As the tears streamed down my face, I decided not to fight back anymore. All I could think about was my kids. I was so afraid that I was going to be killed and they would be left without a mother. I could feel the strength seeping out of my body and mind. But the damage was done. I sat on the curb, numb. I was just relieved to be alive. I vowed that I would never tell anyone of my shame.

    They say that when you keep a secret, it eats you up inside, but I felt that it was better that way. I wanted to appear strong in front of my children and my family. And I wanted to maintain my persona as Jenni, the Rivera rebel who had never lost a fight. But deep down inside I knew I had lost a piece of myself that I would never recover.

    I really enjoy reading my book. It is shocking to find out how strong this woman was by not giving up on life after being raped. I think that if I was in her place I wouldn't be able to stay as strong as she did. I Chose to read this book because Jenni Rivera is one of my most favorite artist and I wanted to read more about her life. So far this book does meet my expectation and I would recommend Jenni Rivera's fans to read it.

    You will find out so much and find out thing your would be really shocked about. I'm going to continue reading this book.

    A beautiful but heart breaking story is told by Jenni Rivera. She explains her life struggles from when she was a little girl to right before she died. Her life was never easy but she always had her head up and her children were here everything. The main character is Jenni Rivera due to her telling her story.

    Jenni was a Mexican- American singer and actor. Her childhood was not easy because her parents were never home to take care of her. It was always her taking care of her brothers and one sister. As she grew older her marriages failed every time and was always a single mother of five kids.

    The setting of this story takes place in Long Beach, California from the years Throughout the story Jenni Rivera also talks about her adventures in Mexico as she was starting her singing career. When she was younger she managed to get from place to place on a bike with her first daughter and later on showed people she could do it and afford to download herself a vehicle. The theme of this autobiography is being unbreakable like the title.

    Jul 30, Crystal rated it really liked it. This was a quick read, I wouldn't recommend it. I mean this is for someone who didn't know Jenni and wanted to know about her. Everything in this book is pretty much what she let be known on TV, Interviews and her show I love Jenni. Her family claims they didn't change it but seriously the last chapter was the only thing they didn't let go into detail and we all wanted to know about her fight with Chiquis and her divorce from Esteban.

    I gave it 4 stars because it was a good read but seriously it wasn't worth the hype or money. Because the last chapter was probably edited by her sister. We really lost a beautiful person inside and out when Jenni passed. This memoir was very touching and brutally honest. She was a true fighter and a woman to be looked up to. It would have been interesting to see the rest of the pages that were yet to be written had she not passed away.

This great book would be recommended to those hard-working women that has come from a long way. Jenni Rivera pours her heart into this book. Making This Autobiography by an Amazing woman and a Be loving bright start that still shines day to day.

    Making the audience and fans feels more inspiring from her and make us feel we have known her in person. Jenni Rivera had a tough life she went through a lot her childhood and her teenage years.

    Jenni Rivera was young mom in her teenage years. She had her first child and she had a rough pregnancy and raising her daughter. She had a really violence relationship with her pasts husbands.

    Apr 25, Mari Romancegirl rated it it was ok. I read this book from our local library. I'm very glad I did and that I did not download it. This woman does not give me the impression that she is a strong woman. She kept making the same mistakes over and over again.

    Why didn't her mother talk to her about birth control or teach her to have self respect of her own body? Jenni didn't even like her own name that she was given at birth! In my opinion, she was a troubled person. She became pregnant in high school with an unplanned pregnancy and wen I read this book from our local library.

    She became pregnant in high school with an unplanned pregnancy and went on to have 4 more children that she didn't plan. Again, why did this woman not download some birth control pills? Where was she when all of this was going on? I did not believe her explanation of these events. Why did she continue to choose men who treated her with disrespect and have children with them?

    When she was sexually assaulted in a car, why didn't she go to the police? This book left me feeling very frustrated with this woman, not admiration. She had bad parents, a father who cheated on her mother, 3 husbands who were not faithful, 5 children she didn't plan, a botched abortion, she appeared in a porn video, she slept around alot, and made many, many, bad choices that she didn't learn from.

    Rest in peace Jenni. Jan 12, Jose Martinez rated it it was amazing.

    Jenni Rivera’s legacy: 3 books tell her story, who does it better?

    Unbreakable By Jenni Rivera Review by: Jose Martinez Lights, sound check, dress on point. This is what Jenni Rivera hears right after her preforms and when she gives a motivation speech.

    I like this book because it goes into great detail about her life and how she grew up and how she got famous. The book I am reviewing is Unbreakable by Jenni Rivera. She also famous for having a tv show that people love to watch. The theme of this book was hard work. It was hard work because she had to find a job and pay for herself. She had to support herself with a help of her dad.

    When she growing up she had guys leave her when she pregnant and had to take care of the kids for herself. Then had to live in a garage. Some people might not like how deep she goes into her back story and her childhood. They might not like it how she has pictures in the books because not a lot of people like pictures.

    May 15, Jamyleth rated it really liked it. This book is about famous Jenni Rivera , how she had nothing and then had everything. Jenni grew up most of her life with boys and she got taught to defend herself by her brothers. Jenni would fight boys because they would touch her butt or say things about her she was "La Reina" as her father would always say. Jenni got sexually abused and got pregnant at She had later on ha more kids and more husbands.

    I think that this book is sad but it is Unbreakable: I think that this book is sad but it is also a good book that teaches you not to give up on what you love the most. I thought it was sad how her little sister and daughter got sexually abused by one of Jennis ex husband. Trino Even though Jenni had a rough start to the music industry she still made it to be a big person.

    Unbreakable: My Story, My Way - Wikipedia

    She passed away in and her music is inspired a lot from things that have happened in her life. I think this book is very "strong", so to speak, because it talks about her life and how she felt. How she overcame impediments in her life and she proved to her parents and her self that she would become a successful woman. There is Spanish here and there, but for the most part it is inspiring and she gets to tell her story her way, it w I am a huge fan of Jenni Rivera, a Mexican-American singer.

    There is Spanish here and there, but for the most part it is inspiring and she gets to tell her story her way, it was her life that she lived and there is no other person to tell it than herself. Really good book to read, even in high school I would of enjoyed this book!
