British classic 'Keisha The Sket' to be published as a book this year Photograph

Classic inner city tale Keisha The Sket is being published as a book, as announced by #Merky Books.

For those who recall the days of sending chapters of the raunchy Keisha The Sket accounts through Bluetooth in school, this release is a wish that longed to be fulfilled. Finally, almost 16 years later, Stormzy’s penguin imprint #Merky Books is revisiting the classic with its original author, Jade LB, with edits for new and old readers to enjoy.


“Keisha is a girl from the ends, sharp, feisty and ambitious; she's been labelled 'top sket' but she's making it work. When childhood crush and long-time admirer, Ricardo, finally wins her over, Keisha has it all: power, a love life and the chance for stability. But trauma comes knocking and with it a whirlwind of choices that will define what kind of a woman she truly wants to be.”

Being released in print for the first time, Keisha The Sket is completed with essays from esteemed writers Candice Carty-Williams, Caleb Femi and more.

The book is set for release on October 14 and is available to pre-order on Amazon and Waterstones – with Waterstones offering a signed edition. Who's hosting the book club?
