Reviewed by Louanne Piccolo for Readers' Favorite Love relationships are difficult enough without interference from ghosts! All the Love You Write by D.G. Driver is an endearing romance with a twist of the supernatural. Although ideally for young adults, older readers will also get a kick out of the memories that Bethany and Mark’s high-school love story evoke. Bethany and Mark have known each other since they were children, but two people more different would be difficult to find – Bethany is headed for college and Mark for the army. Do they have what it takes to make their relationship last despite their differences? Inspired by the love of Mark’s now-deceased grandparents who lived through a similar experience, the couple strives to find a way to make their relationship work. But are the ghosts of Mark’s grandparents trying to help or hinder the couple? D.G. Driver has done it again – she’s written a sentimental story about first love that tugs at the heartstrings, pulling young adult readers towards a satisfying ending, while teaching them the value of friendship, communication and – most importantly – knowing and trusting oneself. All the Love You Write is a character-driven young adult novel showing the growth and development of both Bethany and Mark as they realize that life can be more complicated than it seems. The book’s characters ring true to readers as they behave in ways consistent with their age and context. Bethany knows her own mind but doesn’t have the experience allowing her to be confident in her reactions, and Mark is the quintessential teenage boy – engaging, but awkward. All the Love You Write, with its supernatural element, draws readers irresistibly into the story while teaching valuable life-lessons in the most natural and compelling way.

I've read nearly every book D.G. Driver has written, and they've never disappointed me. All the Love You Write is no different. When I learned this story was the continuation of the author's 2015 novella, Passing Notes, I couldn't wait to read it. As with the novella, this is a sweet, heartwarming tale, and I challenge anyone to read it and not have their heartstrings tugged. The author does an excellent job at portraying the awkwardness of first relationships, especially in the case of Mark. As the mother of sons, I saw several parallels and chuckled many times over his actions. One of the characters frustrated me for a good portion of the book. I wanted to tell this person they were doing it all wrong, but one of the ghosts took care of that for me. I'm a fan of anything supernatural, so that aspect and the connection to Mark were some of my favorite things about the story. The fact that Bethany excels academically and is on a college track, while Mark has struggled in school and chooses to serve his country in the army is a source of conflict between the couple. It's also an apt depiction of how college isn't the path for everyone, while pointing out the many educational and career advancement opportunities within the military. It's clear the author did her research into the time period of the Vietnam War - not only historic events that took place, but also how relationships and opportunities for women were vastly different from today. If you're a fan of love stories - or even better, supernatural love stories, All the Love You Write is an inspiring tale with some some heartfelt messages.
