What is the secret to getting a good night's sleep?   How can you positively manage depression, anxiety, addiction, and other disorders?   What is the impact of nutrition, stress, and exercise on the brain?   Is personality hard-wired or fluid?   What are the best strategies when recovering from trauma and loss?   How do moods and emotions interact?   What is the ideal learning environment for children?   How do love, humor, music, friendship, and nature contribute to well-being?

    New York City life had crammed sidewalks, gasoline-filled puddles, and angry taxi drivers, but Juliette enjoyed the towering sky-scrapers, the half-block walk to school, and the restaurant smells wafting into her bedroom. She had never cared for a horse, let alone a long-horn, when her mother announced their imminent move to a 300 acre ranch in Texas, where they would be caring for three horses, five dogs, twenty-five longhorns, and a cat…all by themselves. Juliette couldn’t help feeling excited, even though she’d have to climb a hill to get a bar of cell-phone service. Soon she was running from bats and snakes, rescuing a calf from a twenty-foot ditch, medicating ponies, and having adventures so crazy it’s hard to believe they’re for real—but it all did, exactly how it’s written. 
    Get ready for side-splitting laughs, heart-wrenching tears, and surprising life lessons learned down on the farm and shared by fourteen-year-old Juliette Turner.
