Yato is a homeless god living in the streets of Japan desperately wanting loyal followers to worship him. Unfortunately he is one of the most unknown gods and doesn’t have any popularity. So, in order to earn money and to try and gain publicity, Yato starts doing services for people in need for a very low price of 5 yen. It’s his attempt to make his dream of owning a shrine and having worshippers come true.
First of all, I like the idea of a homeless god, I think it’s really creative and a great story idea. The cast of characters get developed very well and characters show up very frequently so it’s hard not to forget them, and easier for the reader to remember who they are. I think that anyone interested in action, drama, and a little romance would like this series. Also, as far as I can tell, there isn’t much problems with the series. Overall, Noragami, by Adachi Toka, is very creative and a lot of people can appreciate this series.

Girl Code:Gaming,Going Viral,And Getting It Done, by Andrea Gonzalez & Sophie Houser, begins with a junior named Andy or Andrea Gonzales and a senior named Sophie Houser. They are two girls who met in a coding program that they both signed up for
which is Girls Who Code. As teens becoming into young adults, they figured that there are many women who are very ashamed of the menstrual periods they get.
So Andy and Sophie make a coding game called Tampon Run so they could show that having a period is a normal thing for a teenage girl.
This book was very funny. I liked the creativity that was made in the game. Especially when they use tampons rather than an obvious gun to it. I liked the fact that this is a relevant for a teen's category since profanity is between from
none to less so tweens could read this too. I think mainly teenage girls would like this novel since it gives out a theme to not feel bad about your sexual health. What I didn't like about this book is when there was two teens trying to copy
their game by using condoms.
That is what kinda makes the book a little obscene and salty. I also liked the part when they put pictures in it so the reader could be more interested into reading. I kinda liked the part when they added some websites for people who would like to learn about or get ideas from coding. Girls, you should get this book if you want to know what having a period is like so you won't feel bad about yourself. It is a very humorous and an interesting book to read.
