If you're new to the world of professional wrestling and luchadores, a bump is learning how to fall down and land safely in a performance match. MJ is working to navigate the world without her father, and now, because of some mean girls, without gymnastics. Finding professional wrestling isn't her mom's favorite plan, but she's got a good coach and some promising talent. She'll need both.
MJ is an easy character to root for, and the relationships between MJ and her coach, her mother, her new wrestling friends, and her old gymnastics friends are compelling. I personally didn't think the final climactic twist was necessary, but given the topic, I understand why it was included. MJ's journey and the behind-the-scenes view of professional wrestling are page-turning and memorable.
"It was brave of you to come here like this. It shows you have heart. Heart's the most important thing in this business. It's not muscles or good looks or being a great athlete. This business is hard. If you don't have it in your heart, it'll kill you."
