‘Keisha The Sket’ To Be Published As A Book For The First Time

7 April 2021

If you were around in the UK in the mid to late noughties, you definitely would’ve heard about Keisha The Sket and now the story is officially being published as a book.

Stormzy’s #Merky Books imprint – who is publishing the book – announced the news on Twitter, writing: “A British classic revisited for the first time. Keisha. The. Sket.

“Coming soon. Pre-order now.”

In 2005, London-based creative and academic writer Jade LB began releasing chapters of the raw and raunchy Keisha The Sket chronicles and it quickly became a hit with teenagers up and down the nation. Those with mobiles would send chapters to their friends and its uncensored tone captivated a generation.

It lived on phones and websites since the noughties and is now being turned into an official book many years later.

“Keisha is a girl from the ends, sharp, feisty and ambitious; she’s been labelled ‘top sket’ but she’s making it work, the official synopsis for the book reads. “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.

The book is due for release on October 14th and is available to pre-order right here.
