Because of Winn-Dixie is a very touching book about Opal, a ten year old girl who happens to find a dog at a grocery store. Opal has had very hard times in her life. Her father is a preacher, so she and her dad have to move all the time. Sadly, when Opal was three, her mother left.
I recommend this book for ages 8+. It has sad times and extremely happy times. Opal meets so many kind and generous people along the way. This book has a tremendous amount of love and devotion in it. All the characters are so wonderful. I think every one should read this book.
