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. Recalling the fiction of Harper Lee and Carson McCullers here is a funny poignant and unforgettable coming-of-age novel.
