Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Where were you when Keisha the Sket first broke the internet?

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. 

Told with the heart and soul of the inner city, with an unforgettable heroine, Keisha the Sket is a revelation of the true, raw, arousing and tender core of British youth culture. 

In audio for the first time, Keisha the Sket has lived in the phones and websites of fans for decades, and this timeless coming of age story is not just a word-of-mouth sensation but also a British classic in the making. Complete with essays from esteemed contemporary writers Candice Carty-Williams, Caleb Femi and others, this is the complete and defining edition with edits and additional content from the author, perfect for listeners - existing and new - to listen to and fall in love with over and over again.

Structure is terrible

I was excited to read this book as I remember in my youth everyone talking about Keisha the sket. The book should’ve had a simple beginning and end but all this other content and the authors intro was a waste of time tbh I really would recommend just reading it online for free.

Keisha the sket, what a read

The story goes in straight down and dirty. It did honestly take me back to my school days even though I’m not from London. Keisha could have been a girl from any town.
As so eloquently reviewed by others it does make you think of the culture of youth and British society growing up amongst the trials of navigating puberty, sexual exploration, self discovery and the exploitation of naivety whilst moving into adulthood.
Hats off to Jade LB. It was heartwarming to hear how writing this story made her feel and how it shaped her mindset in later years.

Insightful

I didn’t know what to expect from this book. It left me silent, contemplative and grateful that Jade had given me a glimpse into a work that I had lived alongside for decades. Amazing. It is a cultural masterpiece
