Description
Recalling the fiction of Harper Lee and Carson McCullers, here is a funny, poignant and utterly genuine first novel from a major new talent; A Newbery Honor Book
  • During 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. A big, ugly, suffering dog with a sterling sense of humor. A dog she dubs Winn-Dixie
  • Because of Winn-Dixie, the preacher tells Opal 10 things about her absent mother, 1 for each year Opal has been alive
  • Winn-Dixie is better at making friends than anyone Opal has ever known, and together they meet the local librarian, Miss Franny Block, who once fought off a bear with a copy of War and Peace
  • They meet Gloria Dump, who is nearly blind but sees with her heart, and Otis, an ex-con who sets the animals in his pet shop loose after hours, then lulls them with his guitar
  • Opal spends all that sweet summer collecting stories about her new friends, and thinking about her 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
