Summary, etc.:
Recently retired WWE superstar AJ Mendez Brooks is a powerhouse - strong, quirky, and totally confident. But that wasn't always the case. Growing up AJ was a quiet girl trying to act "normal" when she felt anything but. As her famiy struggled with drug addiction, poverty, and mental illness, she found escape through comic books and video games, and was inspired by the tough and unconventional female characters. It wasn't until she discovered pro wrestling that she learned that superheros could be real. Determined to become the superhero she'd always admired, AJ trained and sacrificed for years to achieve her dream of wrestling professinally. Yet she quickly faced industry pressure to play the role of damsel in distress and to dress more provocatively to cater to male fans. But she fought back and created an ass-kicking later ego that was a genuine representation of herself: nerdy, enthusiastic, and a little bit crazy. With humor and temendous heart, AJ opens up for the first time about her harrowing struggle to understand her demons and the mental illness diagnosis that helped her gain control over her life. What most people view as a hardship, AJ empraced as inspiration for her superhero persona, shattering the stigma attached to mental illness. Charting her journey from a scrappy girl in an unstable home to an empowered wrestling champion, Crazy is My Superpower is an unflinchingly honest story and brave confessional about her long road to self-acceptance.
