Will Josie Win the War on Waste?
Trash is piling up all over Brooklyn. Where does all this trash come from? And where does it all go? Josie and the gang become trash detectives. But this time, they have to organize their teachers too. And just as they are making progress, Josie’s brother Damien, who has been acting strangely, disappears! That leads to the biggest surprise yet in the Josie Goes Green series.
