Jenni Rivera memoir due in July

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

  NEW YORK (AP) -- Some final words from the late Mexican-American singer and TV star Jenni Rivera will be out this summer.

   Atria Books announced Monday it's publishing a memoir by the multimillion-selling artist, who died in a plane crash in December at age 43.

   "Unbreakable" is scheduled to come out in July. It will come out simultaneously in Spanish. It has been authorized by Rivera's family.

   Rivera had been working on "Unbreakable" for several years.

   Atria says "Unbreakable" will reveal the "heart and soul" of Rivera, a mother of five and grandmother of two known for her frank talk about her life.

   Rivera was born in Los Angeles and launched her career by selling cassette tapes at flea markets. She went on to sell more than 15 million copies of her 12 major-label albums.
