First, if you enjoyed Kate DiCamillo's writing style, you could always try more by the same author. Arguably, DiCamillo's most famous novel is Because of Winn Dixie.
Another great book to try is Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson.
It's a story of friendship and loss revolving around two friends who
create their own magical land, Terabithia, and are pretty much
inseparable until the day one of them is left to rule the land alone.
Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath unfolds the story of Primrose, an 11-year-old girl whose parents are lost at sea and presumed dead. Only, Primrose doesn't believe it for a second, despite what everyone tells her. Filled with eccentric characters, this novel deftly weaves loss, humor, hope and recipes into a fabulous read!
Other authors you might want to check out are Sharon Creech (Heartbeat), Alice Hoffman (Indigo, Aquamarine), and Lynne Rae Perkins (All Alone in the Universe). You may also enjoy Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, a fun series that combines mystery, family, loss, humor and love.
