Ilona discovers what it means to have a mother who is a modern woman and a father who is a 19th-century gentleman ghost.
After being hit by a car and taken to the hospital, Ilona starts to realize she's different from other people, and that her mother has hidden the truth from her. She sneaks out of the hospital in order to discover the truth.
A mysterious boy named Archer guides her through Brooklyn and introduces her to Hendrick, the man who claims to be her father--though he died in 1890.
Ilona must discover not only what she must do to rid the city of Soll, a sadistic and powerful spirit, but also what it means to be half ghost. She proves what her mother told her--love is stronger than death.

***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*** Strong As Death by MS Kaye is a wonderful story about a young girl, realizing the world is not exactly as she’s always been led to believe, and striking out on her own, in spite of danger, to find out the Truth. All of the characters are described with such detail, you feel as though they could be next to you. The story is so engaging, you feel the adventure intensely. I went through so many changes, so many emotions with this heroine, Ilona. I had great difficulty putting the story down. I cannot express strongly enough how much you need to read this book, this series, this author. **Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
