Summary: The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket -- and comes out with a dog. With the help of her new pal, whom she names Winn-Dixie, Opal makes a variety of new, interesting friends and spends the summer collecting stories about them and thinking about her absent mother. But because of Winn-Dixie, or perhaps because she has grown, Opal learns to let go, just a little, and that friendship -- and forgiveness -- can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.

I love this book. It is sad but I think she was just trying to tell something about herself.

I loved this book because it had a dog and a girl who had to solve a bunch of problems. She didn't have any friends at the beginning, but she makes friends with adults because of the dog she finds and tries to help. My favorite part was when she finds the dog at the market and names it Winn-Dixie. The dog is SO funny! I would recommend this book for kids in 3rd grade and older who like dogs and funny books.
