Does nature really make us feel better? The 3-Day Effect takes a look at the science behind why being in the wild can make us happier, healthier, and more creative. Whether it’s rafting down Utah’s Green River, hiking in Utah’s wilderness, or walking through Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC, scientists are finding that the more exposure humans have to nature, the more we can benefit from reduced anxiety, enhanced creativity, and overall well-being.

Spoiler alert**

Going outside for three days is good for you. That’s the entire book. Minus the justification and personal stories.

If 14-year-old Cassandra Reed makes it through her first day at Miss Castwell’s Institute for the Magical Instruction of Young Ladies without anyone discovering her secret, maybe, just maybe, she’ll let herself believe that she really does belong at Miss Castwell’s. Except Cassandra Reed’s real name is Sarah Smith and up until now, she lived her whole life in the Warren, serving a magical family, the Winters, as all non-magical “Snipes” are bound by magical Guardian law to do. That is, until one day, Sarah accidentally levitates Mrs. Winter’s favorite vase in the parlor....

A really good book. I can’t wait for the next one. If you are a Harry Potter fan you will like this too.

This is an ensemble of various "x-tra chapters" from various books. Therefore, it is hard to follow and remember names from 7+ books. Narration is wonderful as usual, but seemed to get pulled into 1 plot only to try and figure out new people and different plot quite a few times.
