Instant #1 New York Times bestseller

For millions of adoring fans, the shocking murder of 23-year-old Selena Quintanilla Perez cut short a brilliant music career. Selena was a Mexican-American Madonna without the scandals and the beloved Grammy Award-winning star of a family-run band. As sweet, sexy and upbeat as her songs, Selena quickly became the queen of Tejano, a modern, urban version of Tex-Mex accordion-based music called conjunto.

Selena's records and videos sold out nationwide within an hour of the bulletin announcing her death. But her fabulous music lives on, and with it, the promise of her loving spirit that was already uniting fans from every walk of life all over the nation.
