Item Description...
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.

WARNING--Review Cotains Spoilers !  May 3, 2005
If a book is published by a Christian publishing house and is for teens, I will most likely read it. I'm not too picky.

I gave this book three stars, so I will start with the positive: the information on STI's was very up to date. It gave the best description of sex and birth I've ever read in a Christian novel that was realistic yet not graphic. I did enjoy the characters, and it was a quick read that made me think.

However, I found the whole "ice cream" thing just plain cheesy. Honestly. When Kyle suggests to Julie sex with him will be like ice cream, she actually thinks, "Gee...what if I had waited until I'm 25 to try ice cream?" I found that a little hard to fathom. And if Kyle is also a virgin, how does he know what sex is like?

Despite my qualms, I don't regret reading the book. It was a quick read that made me think. I would definitely suggest it for younger girls (13, maybe?) starting to maybe consider sex. Julie seems a little too naive for a modern day 16 year old, but maybe I'm just jaded.
A very eye-opening book!!  Aug 15, 2003
Just Like Ice Cream is a great book about a teenager who has a summer fling and becomes pregnant. The book follows her struggle to decide what to do. She debates all the options with an adult friend who is a Christian. The book is wonderful without being preachy. Another book you might want to read is If I'd Only Known... by Edee Wilcox. The subject matter is the same - a sexually active teen, but the main character doesn't end up pregnant. This book focuses mainly on the emotional aspects of being a sexually active teen through the eyes of the teen.
Searched for Years for this one  Jan 6, 2003
I read this book when I was in Jr. High and now I am grown with my own family... This book has made a lifetime impression on me and I have been looking to buy this book again for years. I had loaned it to someone and it was never returned... This book is well worth reading, especially if you or someone you know had had a young pregnancy.
This book is terrific!  Apr 23, 2000
I read this book when I was in the 6th grade. I'm now a junior in high school and it is now that everything this book said has meaning. I think that maybe some of the book's content was over my head and under my feet, but now everything comes into perspective. I suggest that any girl having problems with faith or feelings should read this.
Recommended for any teen girl  Dec 4, 1998
I am now in my twenties, but I remember reading this book in the 6th grade. While it may have been a little early for me - some was well over my head, I think it is better for kids to learn too soon what can happen when you have unprotected sex, than too late. It is presented in an entertaining manner that attracts young readers, yet instills in them the hard facts about teen sex. I would recommend this to any parent, and I hope that it is still around when the time comes for me to give it to my daughter.
