Where do I even begin? I loved this book. I’ve never been interested in wrestling, so it may seem weird that I picked up this memoir to begin with. Sometimes you just have a good feeling about a book, though, and that’s what happened with this. AJ Mendez Brooks, known professionally as AJ Lee, talks about her family’s poverty (and sometimes homelessness), mental illness (both her and her mother were diagnosed bipolar), the way society treats women, and achieving your dreams while remaining true to yourself.
If female empowerment is your thing but your Wonder Woman high is running out, this book is for you. If you’re a little offbeat and feel pressure to change, this book is for you. If you like people openly talking about mental illness and actually see them embrace it. If you wish women would build each other up instead of tearing each other down. If you were a second grader who questioned authority. If you like hearing about someone come from literally nothing and make a name for themselves. If you’re just downright nosy and like knowing other people’s lives. And, of course, if you like AJ Mendez Brooks/AJ Lee. This book is for you.
