Does anyone have any recommendations for nonfiction titles for teens on environmental awareness/”going green”? So far I have Girls Gone Green and Generation Green, but I’d appreciate any other suggestions.

  • Flush by Carl Hiaasen
  • Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald
  • They Came From Below by Blake Nelson
