The summer Opal and her father move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket--and comes out with a dog. A dog she dubs Winn-Dixie. 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.
