Rachel found out about some alarming voicemail messages about the other Kudzu Kids

I couldn't believe it when my dad played these messages for me after I told him about Zach's texts.

It sounds like Hunter, Zach and Mel really are trapped in the tunnels! And Mrs. Shegog was trying to warn us!

They both left messages on our home voicemail.

Rachel, this is your father. I just got two messages here that I don't understand. Now, listen carefully and call me back right away. I've called the police, but I need to know what else to do!


Oh, is there no one home? Gracious me. This is Mildred Shegog calling for Rachel and Hunter. Children, you mustn't go near those old tunnels. I'm sorry I let you play in the basement … uh, no. The attic, but … well, I've recently come to find out that it isn't safe at all for you there. Please, there's nothing to see. Don't talk to any strangers, you hear?


Mr. McGowan, call Rachel! We're trapped in the tunnels, and they're filling up with water! Somebody's gotta cut it off! We can't go anywhere! We're trapped in the treas—

We're sorry. You must first dial a 1 or 0 plus the area code when calling this number. Will you please hang up and try your call again?

  • There's Mildred and the basement again. Her house appears to be fairly close tohe Grove, I'll bet there is a basement and it connects to the Grove.

  • Mildred also seems to have been in touch with someone after the Kids were there that now has caused her worry. Is it Lowry or perhaps the bad janitor. Rachael should put her father intouch with the janitor and the student who knew about the tunnels.

  • I wonder if Mrs. Shegog's basement is where the tunnels end up and the kids are in there. They have found the treasure. Do you think someone grabbed Zach's phone before he could finish?
    Who turned the water on? Someone knows they're in the tunnels.

  • I agree with you lgillette, that someone has been talking to Mildred. It's a little strange that she calls the kids 'now'.
