The town of Partas-Gasto is known for its residents who spend money. Everyone buys the newest and most expensive things—except for the young and thrifty Anna. She doesn’t buy things she doesn’t need, and everyone thinks she’s different and should be taught to spend. But Anna cannot be talked into spending money on things she won’t use. She decides to leave the town and look for a place where thrifty people like her live.
