            Imagine moving away from your friends so far away that you never see them again. Horrifying right. Not to opal. She doesn't have that much friends she doesn't feel anything about it. A little bit sad but mostly neutral. The same things go on in her new town too. Not a lot of friends. Until she meets a dog in a grocery store. Oh it is so heart warming. Once, she meets that dogs friends sort of show up. Soon she has A library lady (Miss Franny Block) and.... I can't spoil it. It is so amazing!

                  A 10-year-old girl named India Opal Buloni has just moved to a trailer park in the small town of Naomi, Florida, with her father, The Preacher, known as that because he preaches at the local church. While in the Winn-Dixie supermarket, Opal sees a scruffy dog wrecking the store. Opal claims the dog is hers, and takes it home to The Preacher. Opal christens the dog Winn-Dixie, after the supermarket. She asks her father to list ten things about her mother, who abandoned them.Miss Franny Block, a librarian, shares great stories about her past including one about her great-grandfather, whose family members died while he was fighting for the South in the Civil War. He invented Littmus Lozenge candies, which tasted like root beer and strawberry but included a secret ingredient— sorrow. Anyone who tasted the candies tasted sweetness mixed with sadness. In Because of Winn-Dixie, these candies symbolize that even though life sometimes deals people a bit of sadness, there is always much to appreciate. Opal learns that her sour faced neighbor, Amanda Wilkinson, lost her brother Carson because he drowned. She vows to be nicer to her from then on.

                      I originally learned about this book when I was very young, but I still love it! The movie is better than the book, but keep reading the books by this author.
