    Harry is a fox who lives in Foxboro during a time of deprivation. Winter has been harsh, and food is scarce. His brother, Isaac, leads the government, and while the two haven't gotten along since childhood, Isaac is entrusting Harry with the task of finding an old fortress reputedly full of rabbits.

    Quentin is a rabbit who lives in the fortress. Strange disappearances have been occurring in his world, and his government is enacting strict laws to enforce security. When he runs into a childhood nemesis who is now his superior on guard duty, Quentin knows he must find a way to escape.

    Harry and Quentin are both animals working to solve a mystery and fight for their survival. Each much discover what he believes in and define why he believes himself to be moral.

    A Taste for Rabbit by Linda Zuckerman has many moral issues to ponder. What are you willing to do if you're hungry or need to feed a family? When is it okay to kill other animals for food? How can you determine who to trust? Mother-daughter book clubs with girls aged 14 and up should find a lot to talk about.

    Even though it has talking animals in it, it is incredible. I mean it shows corruption, murder, deceit, and betrayal. Kids would love it for the talking animals, and teens would love the story behind it, I did.

    As a world is wreaked with havoc, two unlikely heroes emerge in order to find peace and unity before the problem goes too far.

    The story takes place in the woods where both rabbits and foxes are civilized creatures, with their own government, attire, and entertainment. In the beginning, both species lived together. However, the rabbits had gone off since the foxes were more like predators and they were the prey.

    Years later, a winter storm comes to destroy most of the food supply in the woods. What's the answer in replenishing what was lost? For the fox's government, which is led by a corrupt politician, it would be rabbit. Of course, the foxes haven't preyed on the rabbits for a while now, and doing so would only lead to an all-out war.

    Harry, a fox, is elected by his government official brother, Issac, to go survey an area supposedly filled with rabbits. Naïve to what is truly going on in his government, Harry is about to embark on a path full of betrayal, deceit, and corruption.

    Quentin, a rabbit, is aware of the problems the rabbit colony is currently facing - mainly, the vanishing of rabbit families. But Quentin is not too fond of the new laws and limits that the rabbit government is starting to apply, and to him the strict army is just pushing it. Wanting to run away from his colony, little does Quentin know that the government was only trying to protect them.

    Two characters from two different worlds, set on a path with two different agendas only to discover that there is only one way to finding peace in their colonies.

    Told in alternating points of view, A TASTE FOR RABBIT gives us an inside look at corrupt governments, rebels, and a world so imaginative and yet so real that it makes us think it could possibly happen. Fast-paced and action-packed, the story is wonderfully written and easy to read.

    The novel aids in showing us that not everything is as it seems and that sometimes we need to take a step back and fully understand the situation in order to assess it.
