It all starts out when India Opal finds a dog at a store and names it Winn-Dixie. Over summer almost everything happens to Opal because of Winn-Dixie. Opal makes new friends because of Winn-Dixie, meets Gloria Dump, becomes friends with the librarian, and meets Otis. Near the end a party happens which gets cut short by a thunderstorm. Winn-Dixie goes missing but is found under a bed in Gloria Dump's house cowering. 5 stars and a stroke of excellence for this book. Amazing!
