Because of Winn Dixie is a story of great adventure. Opal Buloni the main character is a young girl who finds the companionship of a shaggy outgoing dog named Winn Dixie. Opal finds Winn Dixie in the local Winn-Dixie store and decides to take the stray home. Winn Dixie teaches Opal many things and allows her to open up. Opal is new in town and is very lonely before Winn Dixie. This book could be considered controversial to use in a classroom because Opals mother was a drunk and Gloria one of the town’s people used to be a drunk as well. Having help and encouragement from her friends Opal and her father who were once not close share a bonding moment. This story will be sure to stir up emotions. A great book for animal lovers everywhere!
