"Because of Winn-Dixie" by Kate DiCamillo
I love this book because it illustrates the importance of friendship and seeing others for their true character. Also, it proves the point that life is better with a dog! I recommend this book to anyone who loves strong, smart children as narrators and understands what it is like to have a pet as a true family member.
