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.

    "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.

    "A must read"

    This is genuinely one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a while. Hit all the tight notes: moving, funny, sweet, sad, romantic, heartbreaking, and a moral that was not preachy. Such a good read for anyone looking for a captivating story with multi-faceted characters and a lovable story line. Seriously loved this one.

    Story
    "Beautiful"

    Cute contemporary about college students which i love because how many contemporary books are about 15 year old having deep conversations and have wonderful meaningful sex with their one true love. College is the time for alcohol, experimentation and sex in books (and IRL) not freshman in high school.
    Esben is virtually famous and goes to Allisons school. Allison had no idea who he was until after they kissed and ended up virtually famous as well. Allison wanted a normal college experience but handsome Esben ruined that.
    It was really different from your usual contemporary but still really cute and fun, but it also delt with anxiety, isolation, cancer, rape, pain and depression and those pesky college problems.
    I love Allisons foster dad and the care packages he sends their relationship makes me so happy.

    "I could live off of amazon delivery and never leave the house" literally me when anyone asks if i leave my house.
