"The Domino Effect is full of charming characters and the narrative really grips your attention. There are resonances of To Kill A Mockingbird in the incontrovertible morality guiding the story. I found it hard to put down." - BookStackReviews
"Cotto's coming-of-age story left me invigorated, and thinking to myself, "Now, that's how you tell a story." - Underground Book Reviews
"There is an honesty and humor in these pages that doesn't come along every day, but when it does, it is something that should be acknowledged and paid forward." - Lisa Dawn Martinez
"The prologue in this has got to be one of the shortest I think I've ever read, but the most powerful. It had me wanting to start Danny's story fast and I'm glad I did." - Spellbound by BooksThe Domino Effect
by Andrew Cotto is a thoughtful coming of age story that quietly reveals Danny's struggle to understand ethnic polarization, first love, the meaning of friendship and how to do what he knows is right. A book for both boys and girls, I recommend The Domino Effect
for readers aged 14 and up - Mother-Daughter Book Review
From the Author
THE DOMINO EFFECT is a story about growing up. It is intended to be a coming of age story, as opposed to strictly a YA novel, with the idea of appealing to both those experiencing adolescence and those who have survived it as well. It is also intended to be funny and heartbreaking and, in the end, touching and real.
