Crazy Upbringing: A Review on Crazy Is My Super Power by AJ Mendez Brooks
AJ Mendez Brooks' current memoir, Crazy Is My Super Power, was a fascinating read. Despite growing up dirt poor with irresponsible and dysfunctional parents, Brooks turned her life around. I don't watch WWE or know anything about wrestling, but I found Brooks' determination, self-awareness, and scrappiness very refreshing and compelling. I loved how Brooks' dream was to be superhero, and she found a way to make that happen in her own way. Her writing is very real. She didn't sugarcoat anything nor did she shy away from all the embarrassing and ugly parts of her childhood. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and especially to young girls and women.
