Because of Winn Dixie

By Kate DiCamillo (14)

Show/Hide Info

A Newbery Honor award winner beloved by young readers, Kate DiCamillo’s Because of Winn Dixie is the story of a girl looking for a way to belong. Ten-year-old Opal Bulont loves her preacher father, but her mother has left home, leaving a deep hole in the fabric of the family. With Opal struggling to understand this absence, her father tries to satisfy her with ten true things about her restless mother. When Opal moves to a small town in Florida with her father, she does not know a soul, but that is quickly remedied when this warm-hearted girl adopts a homely, stray dog that she names Winn Dixie, after the convenience store where she finds him. Winn Dixie leads his new owner into a series of unusual, but satisfying relationships with the townspeople: an affable ex-convict, an eccentric librarian, and a lonely lady known as the town witch. As Opal develops friendships, her loneliness is assuaged, and she learns a great deal about the mysteries of the human heart. DiCamillo's debut novel was a resounding success, and this can be attributed not only to her lovely comic timing, but also to DiCamillo's heart-tugging encapsulation of the tenderness and love within Opal's burgeoning relationships.
