Little does she know that her search will lead her to the legendary Bravos, a family with a legacy of professional wrestling. Addie enjoys getting to know her grandparents, Uncle, and cousins, but Manny is trickier. Her father may be a great wrestler, but does he know how to be a great father?
Tumble is a fun coming of age story, filled with humor and depth. It’s an especially great read for those interested in luchadores and the culture that surrounds those wrestlers. This is a story about family, but it is also a story about finding yourself and forging your place in the world.
