Cam Jensen, the hero of many adventures in this long-running series, is doing her best to make her school and community environmentally friendly. She and her classmates have been saving and recycling cans and bottles for weeks, and the amount they’ve raised is to be announced at the school’s Green Day assembly. The children had seen the rolls of nickels grow into the hundreds, but when the box is opened, not a single nickel is found.

Cam, who earned her nickname because of her photographic memory, and her friend Eric had solved other mysteries, and their teacher and principle ask for their help to recover the missing moola.

This is an easy read for the younger set, and includes information about how everybody can help protect the environment.
