Almost every teen girl says to herself at some point: I want a boyfriend. Pressure from friends, the media, culture, and the God-given need for deep, unconditional love drives them to desire connection with a boy. In Just Like Ice Cream, 16-year-old Julie deals with an unexpected pregnancy. Desperate, afraid, and confused she finds strength and comfort through prayer and support from friends and family.

From Booklist:

Gr. 6^-10. Several contemporary issues relating to teen sexuality and new information about contraceptives and sexually transmitted diseases are included in this update of a book that has been out of print since 1985. When 16-year-old Julie finds herself pregnant after a summer romance, life begins to move faster than she can handle. The teenage father-to-be is unsupportive and drops Julie when she chooses not to abort. Her best source of support comes from the woman for whom she baby-sits, a woman with maturity and deep faith whose guidance helps Julie gain a sense of self and make the right personal choice. Even though the novel is prescriptive (it advocates abstention from premarital sex and presents abortion as a frightening option), the message doesn't seem too heavy handed. Facts about pregnancy are convincingly integrated into the narrative, as is information about birth control and STDs, including AIDS. Unfortunately, the title, derived from Julie's boyfriend's description of sex, belies the complexity of the issues involved. Shelley Townsend-Hudson
