Here is the brief story summary
In Amala's Hope, It was 2011. The Najjar family, Jamal, with his wife Farah, his teen-aged daughter Amala, and three young sons, fled from Aleppo, Syria, just in time — their home was destroyed. First they went to his uncle’s home in Jordan, and then after five years in a refugee camp, they were able to come to Texas. Faced with prejudice and then a hurricane, they had to work hard to adjust to their new home, but they did, with the support of their neighbor, Marisol, and their new community.
