REVIEW: TO SELENA, WITH LOVE BY CHRIS PEREZ

TO SELENA, WITH LOVE
CHRIS PEREZ
GENRE: AUTOBIOGRAPHY


SYNOPSIS (Goodreads)

One of the most compelling and adored superstars in Latin music history, Selena was nothing short of a phenomenon who shared all of herself with her millions of devoted fans. Her tragic murder, at the young age of twenty-three, stripped the world of her talent and boundless potential, her tightly knit family of their beloved angel, and her husband, Chris Perez, of the greatest love he had ever known.

For over a decade, Chris held on to the only personal thing he had left from his late wife: the touching and sometimes painful memories of their very private bond. Now, for the first time, Chris opens up about their unbreakable friendship, forbidden relationship, and blossoming marriage, which were cut short by Selena’s unforgivable death.

Chris’s powerful story gives a rare glimpse into Selena’s sincerity and vulnerability when falling in love, strength and conviction when fighting for that love, and absolute resilience when finding peace and normalcy with her family’s acceptance of the only man she called her husband. While showcasing a side of Selena that has never been disclosed before and clarifying certain misconceptions about her life and death, To Selena, with Love is an everlasting love story that immortalizes the heart and soul of an extraordinary, unforgettable, and irreplaceable icon.

MY TAKE

5 STARS!


Even though this book is categorized as an autobiography, it's not really an autobiography of Chris Perez's life. To Selena, With Love chronicles his life with the late Queen of Tejano, Selena.

It's been 17 years since Selena was killed and a lot of people are wondering why Chris has waited so long to write a book. Basically, he wasn't ready to share his memories of Selena. He finally came to a point in his life where he felt like it was time.

This book gives an insider view to who Selena was as a person. I believe a lot of her fans (and this is true of any artist) forget there was more to her than just what was shown onstage. She was just like everyone else. She had highs and lows, good and bad days.

This book gives an amazing account of Selena and Chris's relationship. From the first time he'd heard of Selena, joining the band, their secret relationship, eloping, to the last time he seen his wife alive.

To Selena, With Love was an amazing book from the first page to the last. Chris did an amazing job projecting his feelings in this book. I think anyone, whether you are a Selena fan or not, will enjoy this book.
