Title: 180 Seconds
Author: Jessica Park
Rating: 

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 sixteen, 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.

    

Allison has been pushing most people away for most of her life. Growing up in foster care taught her a few things, and one of those things was that everyone leaves and nobody wants her. But when she gets adopted at sixteen and goes off to college things start to change for her. 

Her best friend and her adopted father want her to open herself up to people, but she's having a hard time doing that. That is until she meets Esben. He's an internet sensation and she doesn't know a thing about it. But someone how in a twist of fate, she ends up being included in an experiment for him. Now, she's trying to run from what fate seems to have in store for her and Esben. 

This book took my breath away! It was utterly brilliant, filled with so much emotion and I adored it!  180 Seconds was beautiful, sad, and a whole lot more. I loved this book! It is the best I've read all year, and I can't wait to read it again!
