In class we talked about a possible metaphor that was used in Because of Winn-Dixie. 

" 'The storm won't last long, " the preacher told me. "And when it's over, the real Winn-Dixie will come back.' " pg. 76 We said that the preacher may have actually been talking about himself or his situation when he mentions the storm. Another topic was brought up by a 7th grader: "Why does Opal refer to her mom as mama but her dad as preacher when her dad is the one who is there for her? The discussion that followed was excellent.
