An unexpected tsunami capsizes the ClueFinders’ vessel while they are on an oceanic expedition. Joni and Santiago regain consciousness on an uncharted volcanic island to discover Owen, Leslie, and everyone else aboard missing. Alarmingly, the volcano shows signs of imminent eruption, and strangely, it seems to be thwarting their efforts to escape. The ClueFinders need you! As Joni and Santiago roam the strange island in search of clues, they meet groups of islanders who each offer their own theories about the island’s behavior. Help the ClueFinders as they collect and use information to save the islanders and themselves! Getting to the bottom of the mystery of the volcano will require thoughtful problem solving and courage. The ClueFinders are waiting for you. Are you ready to join them?
