The Keysha Diaries - Volume 1

I really like how Kimani Tru Publications has supported the popular Keysha's Drama series over the years.  Recently, Kimani Tru released The Keysha Diaries - Volume 1 in March.  Cleverly done, the publisher has packaged book one and two of the series into one volume for sale.  

Written by author Earl Sewell, the series chronicles the life of teenager Keysha as she struggles with family and friends while learning valuable life lessons along the way.   Sewell's books are classified as young adult yet they have a strong audience as young as fifth grade.  Currently there are seven books in the popular series with an eighth book to be released in July. This series is a very popular one in my Library Media Center as multiple copies of all of these books are constantly checked out.

Overall I think this this book release is great because readers can enjoy 'Keysha's Drama' and 'If I Were Your Boyfriend' in one sitting.   Below is a really cool video of Sewell performing a re-enactment of 'If I Were Your Boyfriend.'  This skit was performed at the Chicago Teacher Librarian Association meeting.  Enjoy!
