Skissley lives a sheltered 1950s childhood on a Nebraska farm until ills from the “outside“ infiltrate her world, shatter her naïve beliefs and propel her on a quest for understanding.

Abstract:
Skissley is no fictional character! She is a living person, genuine in every way, possessing no more sugar-coating than the nine books revealing her truth do! Like Skissley, her diaries brim with the stuff of real life, not insignificant fluff. As diaries go, these surpass all expectations of what diaries usually kept by a young girl are! Indeed, Skissley’s diaries are a unique take on the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful of the 1960s—written by an extraordinary girl who aspired to be a Nun—and who inadvertently pens a spiritual tour de force revealing her own remarkable soul...

  Great for readers of all ages , 03/05/2011
Reviewer: Ted Nahhas
Just received the 1st in a series of 9 of the Skissley Diaries. Finished in one sitting. I very seldom do that. The author Bonnie Bachman is my age and her life at 12 brought back many memories of my own. Great read!

  Wonderful new book , 05/26/2011
Reviewer: Dave Vegher
What a wonderful read! Bonnie's portayal of a young girl growing up in a small plains town during post WWII America is insightful. It almost felt like you were describing living in the Thirties rather than the Fifties! It is incredible to think that was over half a century in the past. Skissely captured my heart and I read the book in a rapid fire, page turning state. The way it was written in a child'f non-plussed manner really makes the book work for me. I am left in anticipation of the next edition!

  Must be the best diary ever written! , 06/03/2011
Reviewer: cypress kid
Love this book! Could not put it down. The entries are so colorfull and interesting I felt like I was there through every one of Skissley's experiences. What a great window into a time and place that seems so much more interesting than life as we know it today. The ending TOTALLY leaves you wanting the next book. NEXT BOOK PLEASE!
