From the award-winning author of The First Rule of Punk and Strange Birds, a dazzling novel about a young girl who collects the missing pieces of her origin story from the family of legendary luchadores she s never met.
Twelve-year-old Adela Addie Ramírez has a big decision to make when her stepfather proposes adoption. Addie loves Alex, the only father figure she s ever known, but with a new half brother due in a few months and a big school theater performance on her mind, everything suddenly feels like it s moving too fast. She has a million questions, and the first is about the young man in the photo she found hidden away in her mother s things.
Addie s sleuthing takes her to a New Mexico ranch, and her world expands to include the legendary Bravos: Rosie and Pancho, her paternal grandparents and former professional wrestlers; Eva and Maggie, her older identical twin cousins who love to spar in and out of the ring; Uncle Mateo, whose lucha couture and advice are unmatched; and Manny, her biological father, who s in the midst of a career comeback. As luchadores, the Bravos s legacy is strong. But being part of a family is so much harder it s about showing up, taking off your mask, and working through challenges together.
