Description

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.

    Although Selena died when I was 1 years old, I swear at the age of 4 I watched "Selena" movie over 100x. I vividly remember knowing all the words to her songs as well as all the words to the movie by the age of 5. I would mimic her moves in front of the tv & sing along to her songs. As I grew older I started to understand how truly amazing Selena was. She set sooooooooooo many trends that I see performers doing now. Selena was so ahead of her time! Her fashion sense was incredible and her voice was angelic and soft and just beautiful. Most importantly her beautiful soul and personality just made her even more of a one in a million! At first I had mixed feelings about reading this book when it was first hit the shelves because my first impression was that this book wasn't gonna give us the "Real Selena" or Chris wasn't gonna be honest and share the good and the bad. After reading this book in 48 hours I can honestly say this book wasn't disappointing. Chris opened up about almost everything and covered the timeline fairly well! I am impressed and simply at peace with knowing that Selena was just like any normal human being. I really appreciate the fact that Chris was honest and even shared some personal stories of them two. Overall this is a great book! If your a huge Selena fan I recommend this read for you!! You will be able to see how relatable she was and what an angel Selena truly was. Chris, thank you for giving us her fans this closure. May the Queen forever Rest In Peace ..... xoxo! We love you Selena!

He's a amazing man not many like him! Selena was lucky to have him the time she did as was he for her its amazing how like he said every decision takes you some where in life. Such a great book!

    I was only 11 when Selena passed but I remember listening to her music and dancing in the mirror for hours pretending to be her. Thank you Chris for allowing her and your fans into your life with her. It beautiful to know more about her life.
