This book, originally published in 1989, still offers teenagers valuable lessons on the importance of financial planning. David Chilton’s novel introduces readers to three young adults who, at the request of their parents, seek out Roy, a local haircutter who built a successful barbershop from the ground up. As the three spend time observing Roy in the barbershop, he imparts wisdom on a number of financial topics, including saving, budgeting and retirement.
