HERE’S THE PROBLEM
Twelve-year-old Henry Dunne is being framed for a series of increasingly mean-spirited pranks at his new school, and the principal’s car has disappeared from inside a locked garage.
HERE’S THE DEAL
Henry agrees to figure out how the car disappeared, and Principal Pal agrees to figure out the identity of the prankster, whose calling card is a joker from Henry’s favorite deck of cards.
HERE’S THE CATCH
During their investigations, Henry and Principal Pal uncover a dangerous plot that brings them together, tears them apart, and forces Henry and his friends to fight for their lives against a vengeful force from a past that is not their own.

Greg Koren graduated from Towson University in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science degree in English and a concentration in writing. That same year, he began working as a newspaper reporter and columnist in Maryland, first as Associate Editor of the weekly East Baltimore Guide, then, in 1993, as Senior Features Writer for the daily Carroll County Times. During his fifteen-year career, he won more than a dozen awards for his writing, among them the Maryland State Teachers Association’s School Bell Award for excellence in education reporting, the Associated Press’ Mark Twain Award for outstanding features writing, and six awards, including three first-place, from the MDDC Press Association for feature and column writing.
His one-act play, An Arrangement of Convenience, about the difficult subject of AIDS, won the Maryland Playwrights Festival, and in 1989 was produced by the Vagabond Theater in Baltimore to rave reviews.
In 1998, Greg and his wife traded places, and he became the at-home parent. A year later, while writing a weekly column for the Carroll County Times on his experiences as an at-home dad, he decided to homeschool his two kids, making him one of only three homeschooling fathers in Baltimore County.
Greg always loved reading aloud to Max and Mara, and those homeschooling years introduced him to the enchanting world of children’s fiction. He was immediately taken with the powerful storytelling being written for middle school-grade readers and decided he wanted to try his hand at it. His first MG novel, Do Over, was published in 2016. The Memory Trap is his second.
