"Because of Winn-Dixie" by Kate DiCamillo
One day India Opal Buloni goes to the supermarket, and brings home something that no one would expect. A dog she named after the Winne-Dixie supermarket. Why does she bring this dog home? Because she wanted to save him for going to the pound and she told the manager that that he was her dog. In the beginning she is a little iffy about the dog, but soon she falls for the charming smile, and the great personality. This dog helps her out more than she thinks though. Winne-Dixie helps her meet Miss. Franny Block, Otis, and Gloria Dump. Opal probably would've had a different experience if she hadn't met Winne-Dixie, and she might just help some people along the way.
I give Because of Winne-Dixie 5 stars because it is a charming story full of laughs, and tears. I have read it more than once, and I loved it every time.
