Because of Winn-Dixie is an amazing book about a girl named Opal who moves to Florida with her father and finds a dog in a supermarket. She names him after the store and claims he is hers. She immediately falls in love with him because of his toothy grin and his fun-loving nature. She brings him home and introduces him to the preacher, her father. His father is unsure about Winn-Dixie at first but Opal talks him into keeping him. He has bald spots, smells like a garbage can, and is in bad shape but she quickly fixes him up and he looks (and smells) brand new.
This story is about Winn-Dixie and Opal’s friendship and adventures.
