Ninth-grade Rudy has asked eleventh-grade Patricia out on a date, and to his amazement she has agreed. Now Rudy has to come up with the money, the poise, and the conversation to carry it off. This one-act play, by turns heartwarming and heart-wrenching, follows Rudy from his desperate search for guidance from family and friends through the hilarities of the date itself, all the way to its successful conclusion. “To present a new kind of coming-of-age story, a play is the way.”--American Bookseller

Gary S. has done it again with this charming enertaining "sweetheart of a play" peopled with appealing characters. It's easy to feel for Rudy and his pre-date angst. I recommend this to anyone who has ever been a teen and/or has ever been in love, whether male or female, Latino or Anglo. MUY BUENO! Author! Author!

I have to pull equity sticks to choose which of my fifth graders gets to be the next to read this book. I hope to have them put together some kind of reader's theater in the fourth quarter. It is awesome when they connect with a book.

The things I like about this story is that some parts are in

Spanish .So I'm learning new words and many different meanings

I also liked the characters because they have the typical trouble. Another

Reason I like this book because I like Gary Soto's books. Some of his books

Teaches lessons about life how to be yourself and many more.

The things I dislike about this story is that to much of the story

Is in Spanish .Another reason is that the characters in this story

are fake to me. They have real conflicts but they handle them differently

and it was just doll and boring.

Overall the book was about everyday life of teenagers because there

Was Patricia and she was going on a date with a boy named Rudy.

Rudy was so nervous he kept asking his friend Alex what to talk about

Should he talk about colors clothes her or anything! So Alex told

Him to be himself .on the other side Patricia was worried if he likes her or

He doesn't because she's older than him. Then they met at a burger place called

Steaks, Steaks, y Mas Steaks. Rudy and Patricia start talking laughing and having a good o time the date went well Rudy wasn't so nervous anymore.
Novio Boy takes place in Southern California .Rudy the main character is an ordinary 14 year. old with his best friend Alex .But when Rudy meets pretty and smart Patrica in Roosevelt's high school cafeteria he plops on an extra helping of frijoles / beans. But she's 2 years older and Rudy doesn't know what to do! So he asks her out on a date to Steaks, Steaks, y mas Steaks! Where a hamburger costs like $5.00 more than McDonalds. Then he realizes he doesn't have enough money for his date. So he goes to his mama and gets $10.00 and advice about if its ok to date an older woman. He really doesn't get anything from her even though she's 2 years older than Rudy's papi . So he goes to his Uncle Juan and he pulls out some advice about not to worry about money and worry about what your going to say! And latter he gives Rudy $10.00 he finds behind Sarah. His good luck girl so everything goes pretty good with Patrica. (except everyone he knows is there).So everything goes spectacular and Estella likes Patrica. I like this book because its cute, Rudy and Alex are so funny, and its kind of like a teen thing kind of book that you can relate to. A true all star book .least I think so.
