Because of Winn-Dixie tells the story of a lonely young girl who adopts an orphaned dog she names Winn-Dixie (from the supermarket where she found him). The bond between the girl and her special companion brings together the people in a small Florida town and heals her own troubled relationship with her father.
Sleepy Naomi is a place where people have forgotten how to share their sadness and their joy. But Opal and Winn-Dixie might have something to say about that.
Winn-Dixie guides Opal into places where magic dozes under a coat of dusty disappointment and awakens the people hiding there. Things begin to change day by day under the summer sun - in a funky pet store, a musty library, a drab mobile home, a ramshackle house and a convenience store-turned temple of worship.
