Touching Snow by M. Sindy Felin

Karina has a huge problem. Her stepfather is abusive to her and her sisters. Karina knows something should be done about him, but fears what her mother will do. Then, one day "The Daddy" goes too far and almost kills her sister Enid. However, the drama truely begins there when every adult in Karina's life gives her their opinion about what she should do. Several want her to tell the truth, while others, including her mother, beg her to lie and protect "The Daddy".
This book is very dramatic and touching. It also gives insight into how some abusive families function-- instead of protecting the victim, protect the abuser. Karina's tale is heartbreaking, but M. Sindy Felin did a wonderful job.
