Meet Justine McKeen, the Queen of Green. She's trying to save the planet, one person at a time, and when she decides to get something done, it's a lot of fun.When a small bird is injured after flying into a school window, the students are shocked and upset. But they are even more shocked when school bully Jimmy Blatzo rescues the bird and nurses it back to health. Blatzo may have saved one bird, but the problem is much bigger and not confined to the school grounds. Birds are flying into the windows at the town hall too. With the help of Justine, green activist extraordinaire, Blatzo gets the courage he needs to approach town council. Getting over his fear of public speaking will be one challenge. Getting used to his new nickname, Bird Nerd, will be another matter entirely.

To Samantha and Jayse, with much love—you are wonderful sunshine for all of us!
“Yesterday after school was so embarrassing,” Justine said. “The woman shouted pig pee at me! Pig pee, pig pee, she yelled. And then she slammed her door in my face.”
As usual at recess, Justine was hanging out at the school flagpole with her friends Michael and Safdar and Jimmy Blatzo.
“Pig pee?” Blatzo asked.
“I know,” Justine said. “Can you believe it? I had carefully explained it was pig urine. And I’m just trying to help the environment and make a little money with door-to-door sales. I guess sometimes you have to put up with stuff like that when you’re the Queen of Green.”
“Pig pee,” Blatzo said. He was frowning as he thought about it.
“Think that’s embarrassing?” Safdar said to Justine. “On Saturday, I was walking through the park with some friends and I had to yawn.”
“What’s so embarrassing about that?” Michael asked.
“I yawned while I was walking through a spider web,” Safdar answered. “And the spider and the fly that it was eating went right into my mouth. Even worse, I accidentally chewed before I could spit it out!”
“Pig pee,” Blatzo said again. His frown grew deeper.
“Pig urine,” Justine told Blatzo. “Get over it.”
“Oh yeah?” Michael said. “Let me tell you about embarrassing. Yesterday at supper, I jokingly told my dad that his boss had called and said he was fired. But my dad took it seriously and phoned his boss and called him a bunch of names. Then my dad really did get fired from his job!”
