In this story, a young girl named Opal moves to Florida with her father, who is a preacher. Her mother left them when she was younger. One summer, Opal is at the local store when a stray dog starts causing chaos. When the store manager comes over she quickly claims the dog as her own. They leave the store, and she names the dog after that store, Winn Dixie. She takes the dog home to her father, whom she doesn’t have a close relationship to, and asks if she can keep him. Opal doesn’t really have many friends, so Winn Dixie becomes her side kick. With the help of Winn Dixie, Opal soon finds a great group of friends, and gains a relationship with her father that she has been missing.
