Publisher's Summary

Some people live their entire lives without changing their perspective. For Allison Dennis, all it takes is 180 seconds...

After a life spent bouncing from one foster home to the next, Allison is determined to keep others at arm's length. Adopted at 16, she knows better than to believe in the permanence of anything. But as she begins her third year in college, she finds it increasingly difficult to disappear into the white noise pouring from her earbuds.

One unsuspecting afternoon, Allison is roped into a social experiment just off campus. Suddenly, she finds herself in front of a crowd, forced to interact with a complete stranger for 180 seconds. Neither she, nor Esben Baylor, the dreamy social media star seated opposite her, is prepared for the outcome.

When time is called, the intensity of the experience overwhelms Allison and Esben in a way that unnerves and electrifies them both. With a push from her oldest friend, Allison embarks on a journey to find out if what she and Esben shared is the real thing - and if she can finally trust in herself, in others, and in love.

    "It just wouldn't end!!"

    This book started off ok. Then.. there was a perfect place for an ending and it just kept going and going.... getting more and more depressing and weird... just.. NO. I want my time back.

    "180 seconds"

    Jessica Park has hit our inner voices, our under bellies if you will, and let us see what happens when we think of others. how it opens us up to life, love and self-love. great performance by Arielle DeLisle if you choose audible . Best moment... definitely those first 100 and 80 seconds.

    "Eye Rolling..."

    I have always loved Jessica Park's books but I cannot even finish this one. CHEESE fest!! Everyone is so perfect and the cliches are bountiful. The social media and hashtag portrayal made me gag....

    "Couldn't finish it"

    The first several chapters were depressing and unrelatable. Then, it got interesting with the 180 second experiment, but unbelievable results. Then, it just got eye-rollingly annoying. There are still 5.5 hours of the book left and I just can't do it. There is nothing great about the writing that has me buying into the characters or plot.

    "Not bad!"

    Not a bad story about life love and lost. Overall this was pretty good the ending got somewhat annoying but I would definitely recommend it. This book reflects on the positive aspects of social media how it can be used in a good way to educate to bring awareness to celebrate and even for entertainment. It's also touches on the morality of human beings and how there are good people in the world.

    "Should Be Required Reading"

    This is a stunning story read impeccably.

    I was moved in so many ways. Inspired, enlightened, healed and taught. I truly think everyone could benefit from the beautiful truths in this story, and so many would love the romance.

    This book has become a favorite of mine. For. Sure.

    "must read"

    Normally I read young adult action books that a bit of romance, but this book was so sweet and full of love that I felt like I had to post this review. I really enjoyed listening to this and I will repeat that action!

    "All the emotions you could ever feel"

    this book made me laugh, cry and feel love. I was wrapped up so in the characters that I cried at the end. I didn't want this book to be over and I want to know what happens afterwards.

    "Adorable and not predictable"

    This is a great read. I love the story line of awkward girl meets hot charismatic quasi internet celebrity. It could be predictable and formulaic but this wasn't. I will read this one again.
