The Haunted Mobile
Jake’s mobile is going wrong. It’s sending weird texts to his friends. Then they start appearing on his phone – from himself. Then the voice messages begin. A girl is trapped in a storm drain, begging him for help. But the messages delete as soon as he hears them. Finally he gets a live call from her, and he knows he has to track her down. Will it be too late for the girl – or for Jake?
