A short story that's both moving and very passionate, I reread this book for the 5th time after uncovering it from a pile of dust. This book is about a girl name India and her father who move to Florida. She's an only child and her mother is long gone. Around the beginning of the story, India is shopping in a super market and comes across this stray dog that is going crazy. She saves him and names it after the supermarket that she found him in, Winn Dixie. Through this, Winn Dixie inspires her to do things and have more courage in her life. It's a must read.
