Crazy Is My Superpower: How I Triumphed by Breaking Bones, Breaking Hearts, and Breaking the Rules

We rated this book:


She’s known to millions of wrestling fans around the world as A.J. Lee, a three-time Divas champion, a Chuck Taylor-wearing tomboy badass, and a major player in Monday Night Raw storylines for years, including the show’s landmark 1000th episode. But there’s a lot more to her than just butterfly belts and heel turns.

Crazy Is My Superpower gives us the full story of A.J. Mendez Brooks, from her childhood to her Hall of Fame-worthy career and beyond. Calling this a biography, though, diminishes its message. Throughout the book, A.J. shares intimate details about her mentally ill mother and her own struggles with mental illness, championing the importance of recognizing who you are, good and bad, and taking the necessary steps to ensure your own health and happiness. Chock full of hard-won lessons learned, this book is a rallying cry for tomboys, geek girls, dreamers, and outcasts.

The mix of humor and brutal honesty makes for an almost compulsively readable story, something that transcends the wrestling audience. Crazy Is My Superpower was so much more than I expected, and it was an incredibly worthwhile surprise.
