I am trying to remember what book this was, probably a "young adult" novel. I don't remember the main story but there was a side part where the kid has a pet rabbit, I think it was a secret from his parents, in a hidden hutch. He forgets to feed/water it for a few days, suddenly remembers, and discovers the rabbit has.... in my memory, it had chewed its own feet off, but maybe something else horrible instead. I would think I had made this up but I mentioned it to someone who also remembered that bit of the story, but not the name of the book or anything else about it.
I want to find this book so I can remember never, ever, ever, to recommend it to anyone, ever.
