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.

Review:

In this book, Opal goes to a grocery store and comes back with a dog. She named it Winn Dixie because that is what the store was called. Then she notices that a friendship can come as fast as a blink of an eye. In this book, you will find all the adventures they do together.

When I read it for the first time I asked if there was a movie. When they said yes, I wanted to see the movie.
