More About Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
 
 
 
Overview
The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to a small town in Florida, Opal goes into a supermarket and comes out with a dog, a dog she spontaneously names Winn-Dixie. Because of Winn-Dixie, the preacher finally tells Opal ten things about her absentee mother--one for every year that Opal has been alive. Because of Winn-Dixie, Opal meets Miss Franny Block, who once fought off a bear with a copy of War and Peace; Gloria Dump, who is nearly blind but sees with her heart; and the ex-con Otis, who sets his pet-shop animals loose after hours and 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 that friendship--and forgiveness--can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.
