They meet Gloria Dump, who is nearly blind but sees with her heart, and Otis, an ex-con who sets the animals in his pet shop loose after hours, then lulls them with his guitar. Opal spends all that sweet summer collecting stories about her new friends and thinking about her mother. But because of Winn-Dixie, and perhaps because she has grown up a bit too, Opal learns to let go a little. She also learns that friendship and forgiveness can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm. Beloved by critics and teachers, this extraordinary book is an enduring favorite for young readers.
