India Opal’s lonely when she moves to Florida. Her mom’s left, her father’s busy and won’t talk about her mother, and she has no friends. But you don’t have a chance to feel sorry for her because her entire life changes when she goes to the grocery store one day. At the Winn-Dixie she meets a scruffy, stray dog with bald patches. A dog that wags his tail so hard, India knows he’s looking for a home. A dog that has a face so expressive that he can smile. A dog that needs love and guess what? India’s the perfect person to give it to him. She bathes him, shampoos him, names him Winn-Dixie, shares all her problems with him and begins to love him. And when India starts loving Winn-Dixie, amazing things happen.
