Another Genius Way to Approach Will's Story

I have already read and listened to this book more than once. This newest version, with artwork by Danica Novgorodoff, is a beautiful retelling of the story. She uses collage and watercolor and layering to add to Will's story. The visuals she adds to Will's journey truly supplement this story. 

Will, on his way to avenge his brother's death, is confronted with the ghosts of different people as he makes his way down to the first floor in the elevator. These people all had some sort of influence on Will or his brother. Will these ghosts be able to sway Will's desire for vengeance?
