    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.

    Complete with essays from esteemed contemporary writers Candice Carty-Williams, Caleb Femi and Aniefiok Ekpoudom.

In 2005, the author known only as 'Jade' began releasing chapters of Keisha The [Da] Sket on Piczo. The work became a viral sensation, capturing black British culture and youth-authored youth experience. Jade LB is a London-based creative and academic writer whose writing explores black women and relationships, black British culture and the black British working-class experience. One half of The Echo Chamber podcast, she has written articles and essays for Black Ballad and other publications and currently takes up space in academia. Here, she returns to Keisha The Sket, revisiting and amplifying a character she created when she was just thirteen.
