Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo, 182 pages, read by Kira, on 05/25/2013

WinnDixie1 Because-Of-Winn-Dixie-3-T5CPEU88EA-1024x768 Much different, lighter, from her The tale of Despereaux, which I found to be a little dark.  Its the story of Opal, a preacher’s daughter, who’s mom left when she was 3.  Opal and her dad have just moved to a new town, and through her dog “Winn Dixie” Opal is able to make friends with all sorts of people.  The best “scene” was when her dog, started chasing a mouse through the win dix famchurch. A short feel-good novel.
