Crazy is my Superpower

A great nonfiction recommendation to read!

A memoir by WWE Wrestling Champion AJ Mendez Brooks, better known by her wrestling name AJ Lee, is an inspiring story of overcoming obstacles, working hard, and embracing being bipolar. Growing up poor in New Jersey with an undiagnosed bipolar mother who took out her frustrations on her youngest child, AJ escaped her unstable reality through schoolwork, video games, and wrestling. At 12 she decides she will be a WWF (later the WWE) Wrestling Champion. 'Crazy is my Superpower' recounts AJ being accepted to NYU, enrolling in wrestling school, and ultimately landing her dream job at the WWE. Smart writing filled with wit, sarcasm, and (a few) expletives that immediately pulls you in.
