Jali Boy

Jali Boy
by Ricky Macourt

Being sent to boarding school in the city is harder than Jali could ever have imagined. But what no one yet knows, even Jali, is that this boy is a warrior at heart.

“Ya lying,” interrupted Jali. “Minus numbers dun exist!”
Jali wasn’t trying to be rude, he was trying to learn. But this “mathematics” was confusing. Numbers didn’t go backwards from zero. That was stupid. You couldn’t have less than no pipis or lilly-pillys at all.
