Black Ballad

'Our literary foremother.'
Candice Carty-Williams

'Reading Keisha the Sket as an adult makes me swoon at the richness of its nostalgia.'
Caleb Femi
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 print for the first time, KEISHA THE SKET has lived in the phones and websites of fans for decades. 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 definitive edition with edits and additional content from the author, perfect for readers - existing and new - to read and fall in love with over and over again.
