Warped by Maurissa Guibord

genre: young adult fantasy

When Tessa's father buys an ancient-looking tapestry, she immediately senses a connection to it - strange dreams begin to disturb her sleep and visions of forests and fear haunt her when she's awake.  On the day that she takes a singular thread from the tapestry and gently pulls, not only does the world as she know it begin to unravel, but she is suddenly smack in the middle of a battle between the Fates, one tapestry-weaving witch and a young man from the Middle Ages whose own story seems inexplicably entwined with hers.  It's up to Tessa to sort through the mess before it's too late and everything she loves is lost.

Warped is a romantic, time-bending fantasy romp.  It's a good versus evil story with some interesting twists - I liked how she used the idea of weaving our life threads into tapestries and how the Fates can control the things that happen to us. I also have a childhood love of unicorns which does come into play in this story.  While sometimes the romantic scenes and the dialogue feel flat and a bit unrealistic, I still found myself eager to pick it up and finish it.
