Have you ever moved and felt so alone you don't have anybody to talk to? Well, Opal knows how it feels...until she meets Winn-Dixie and he changes her life forever. Opal and Winn-Dixie have many adventures together, and they meet new friends. Read the book to find out what happens.

I'm Macey, and I like the book Because of Winn Dixie because it has animals, and I love animals. My favorite part is when Opal meets Winn-Dixie at the grocery store in the beginning of the story. I most relate to Opal because my cat, Sam, ran away, just like Winn-Dixie did. Luckily I found her in the neighbor's yard under the car.

I'm Xitlali, and I like the book Because of Winn - Dixie because it has a lot of sadness that turns to happiness in it. My favorite part is when Winn-Dixie gets found at the end of the story after the thunderstorm. I most relate to Sweetie Pie Thomas because I use to suck my thumb.

Macey recommends this book for everyone who loves animals, funny things, and advetures. Xitlali recommends this book for anybody in the world. If you read this book you will be as connected and close to Opal and Winn-Dixie as we are. Read the book to find out what else happens. :)
