It later describes the efforts of Upali and his friend Jinna to lead their lives in a small deserted island. The novel has been translated into several languages, and was made into a film of the same name in Upali Giniwella is a boy living in a village in southern Sri Lanka. He had lost his mother at a young age about 7 years old, and is under the care of a stepmother. Jinna is the servant boy of their house, and is a close and devoted friend to Upali.

"A Voice From Your Inner Heart..."
They learn that the deserted island, Madol Doova, is believed to be haunted, but start farming there with the help of Podigamarala.
Meanwhile, another man named Punchi Mahattaya arrives on the island and later helps them with their work. When Upali hears that his father is taken ill, he returns home and helps out his stepmother and stepbrother.
I liked the fact that it has the Sri Lankan colouring with names of titles, food etc. I read the original when I was around 14 and didn't see things I see now re-reading it.
And I didn't noticed it earlier, being motherless and having a step-mother is a key reason for Upali's rebellious personality. It's his way of "punishing" his father for forgetting his mother so soon. Then Upali loves adventures and it is this teenage venturesomeness that leads Upali and Jinna Upali's friend and a sevent-boy in his household to walk away from the class structure and make bold choices , face the consequences and to face the realities in their own terms.
The island helps to shape Upali into a mature figure a one who is responsible, independent and caring. View all 3 comments.

I loved every page. There is adventure, boats, good and bad guys! At that age there is something profoundly evocative in words like Island, boats, adventure and so forth and I have remembered Upali's adventures with great pleasure over the years.
