James Mulhern’s supernatural story, Molly Bonamici, revolves around Molly, a high school senior. Molly is in for a big surprise when she follows her grandmother to visit a faith healer in a less than stellar neighborhood in Boston. Lady Jane, the faith healer, tells Molly that she is the Angel of Death. Lady Jane predicts that Molly will be surrounded by tragedy for the remainder of her life, and that some of the deaths will be violent and hard to experience. When the faith healer’s prediction begins to come true, Molly panics. She doesn’t believe in the supernatural or paranormal, so she decides to get out of town and see a different view of the world. Along the way, she meets a number of extraordinary, vibrant characters and she realizes something interesting about life. Molly discovers that life is a giant mystery and no one is prepared for life’s twists and turns. She can’t be expected to know all of life’s surprises. And what would be the fun in that, anyway?
The best thing about Molly Bonamici was the characters. James Mulhern did an excellent job of creating strong, colorful characters that lit up the page. There wasn’t a single clichéd or flat character among the plethora of people that Molly encountered. Molly, of course, was my favorite. She was a strong female character that wasn’t afraid to show her weakness or vulnerabilities. She was thrown into a strange new world with her so called powers, and when she didn’t understand what was going on, she went on an incredible journey to find out. I found her refreshing and very likeable. A job well done.
