Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo

Because of Winn-Dixie

Here's the blurb:
When ten-year-old India Opal Buloni moves to Naomi, Florida, with her father, she doesn't know what to expect -- least of all that she'll adopt Winn-Dixie, a dog she names after the supermarket where they meet.  Before long, Opal and her father realize -- with a little help from Winn-Dixie -- that while they've both tasted a bit of melancholy in their lives, they still have a whole lot to be thankful for.

Here's my Friday 56:
"I know it," Otis told her.

  1. Looks interesting with a daughter-dad-dog winning combo. I might have to check this one out. I like the name Opal, sounds old fashioned.
