‘The Collector’ By Haley Forté

Every October the Carnival arrives in Rosalind’s small farming town to entice the residents. An urban legend follows in its tracks, a story about a menacing man who dwells within a tent and takes what he wants. When Roz and her two best friends, Olivia and Mason, enter the fabled big top, Roz finds out that perhaps the tale of The Collector may not be as fictional as they first thought.
