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.
