MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is for every young woman who couldn't find a seat at the lunch table. AJ Mendez Brooks writes about loneliness, mental illness and finding her place in the world with genuine vulnerability and perhaps more importantly, genuine strength."
--Amy Koppelman, author of A Mouthful of Air, Hesitation Wounds and I Smile Back

" A.J. Mendez Brooks is a stunningly gifted writer. Crazy Is My Superpower is at once breathtakingly honest, hilariously funny, self-deprecating and incredibly inspiring. I absolutely loved every page of this book."
--Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author of Friendkeeping and You Had Me at Woof

"This woman is 5'2" of raw talent, heroic honesty, and gut-busting humor. AJ's story left me both breathless and feeling like I should be jumping up and down shouting, "Yes, yes, oh my god, f**k yes!!!!!"
--Deborah Copaken, New York Times bestselling author of Shutterbabe and The Red Book

"AJ Mendez Brooks' candid account of her struggles and success offer young women a wonderful role model regarding how to be yourself, stand up for what you believe in and embrace the "crazy." AJ's story promotes empowerment, not just through physical strength, but through emotional strength as well."
--Dr. Jen Hartstein, Family Psychologist and author of Princess Recovery

"This compelling memoir, written with genuine humor and strength, shows how AJ persevered over circumstances that a lesser human would have been destroyed by. She is truly a Super Hero."
--Caroline Rhea, Actor, TV Host, and Stand-up Comedian

"AJ Mendez Brooks is the role model we desperately need in today's culture! Authentic and inspiring, AJ embraces her challenges, bravely discusses her past, and shows us all how to turn pain into power."
--Emily Roberts MA, LPC - "The Guidance Girl" Psychotherapist and author of Express Yourself: A Teen Girl's Guide to Speaking Up and Being Who You Are

"[Brooks] successfully uses her own life story to show how a perceived weakness can be an unstoppable strength."
--Library Journal
