Publisher's Summary

Based on the Emmy Award-winning web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, this is a new novel starring Lizzie's spunky sister, Lydia, as she navigates the joys and pitfalls of becoming an adult in the digital age.

Before her older sister, Lizzie, started her wildly popular vlog, Lydia was just a normal 20-year-old plotting the many ways she could get away with skipping her community college classes and finding the perfect fake ID. She may not have had much direction, but she loved her family and had plenty of fun. Then Lizzie's vlog turned the Bennet sisters into Internet sensations, and Lydia basked in the attention as people watched, debated, tweeted, tumblr'd, and blogged about her life. But not all attention is good.

After her ex-boyfriend, George Wickham, took advantage of Lydia's newfound web fame, betrayed her trust, and destroyed her online reputation, she's no longer a naive, carefree girl. Now Lydia must work to win back her family's trust and respect and find her place in a far more judgmental world.

Told in Lydia's distinctive, eccentric, and endearing voice, The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet picks up right where The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet left off. Featuring fresh twists, wonderful new characters, and scores of hilarious texts and tweets, The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet takes you behind the webcam and into the lives of your favorite sisters in a way that's sure to satisfy existing fans and delight new ones.

    "A little angsty but a satisfying conclusion"

    Lydia's story was like a trainwreck in slow motion, but it made her triumph that much more sweeter.

    Mary Kate playing a subdued Lydia was jarring, but fit well with her story from the LBD series. The Bennet parents are given much more exposition here, and you actually come to like their mother.

    MK also does very uncanny impressions of Mrs. Bennet... and Jane. Dear lord, does she do that impression justice.

    Speaking of which, we need a third book with Jane as the protagonist! Although Laura Spencer is pretty busy these days...

    "Mary Kate does it again!"

    I'm glad I stumbled onto LBD recently. After watching them on YouTube I really wanted to see what was happening with Lydia. Both the story and Mary Kate did not let me down, she is a fantastic actress and I love seeing how Lydia progressed after the series over. Perfect ending for this character!

    "This unexpectedly gave me many feels"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It was surprisingly moving to follow Lydia's difficult road to self acceptance, forgiveness, and healing.


    Have you listened to any of Mary Kate Wiles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is Mary Kate's first audiobook, but its one she should be very proud of. Her reading show her great depth and understanding of the character of Lydia Bennet, which is to be expected, but she also fully brings to life a new cast of characters. I hope she does more books.

    "Epic storytelling by Mary Kate Wiles!"

    I loved listening to this. Her impressions of some characters would be hilarious and as she'd narrate it was also soothing, but she also voiced Lydia perfectly too.

    I really enjoyed MK's performance of Lydia. She is really fleshed out in this book compared to the web series. I would recommend this book to anyone after they watch the web series.

    "Great narrator"

    Mary Kate did a great job bringing her story to life! I really liked the psychology history as well since that was her major.

    "Good to hear from you, Lydia."

    I really liked that Lydia got her own story. It felt very true to her and I enjoyed revisiting the the characters a lot.

    I didn't find the plot incredibly captivating but I am so happy to know what Lydia's up to.

    Mary Kate Wiles is a wonderful narrator. She is Lydia.

    Story
    "I was nervous.."
    What did you love best about The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet?

    So I was nervous listening to this one because I was afraid that she would have the same voice as in the YouTube Lizzie Bennet Diaries (high pitched, fast, annoying). But it wasn't! It was the same actress but she was mellowed.


    If you could rename The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet, what would you call it?

    "Lydia Bennet is the most epic procrastinator of telling loved ones important things."


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely pick this story up if you enjoyed the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Also, I like this ending for Lydia Bennet a lot more than Jane Austen's ending for her.
