The life of Emmaleigh Foster was slightly different from most of her small town peers. She had a crazy grandfather who insisted her father was an imposter. Even stranger things begin to happen when Emmaleigh discovers her mother to be dead. She discovers a whole world similar to ours, but slightly different. Will she be able to save both universes?

A/N: This isn't exactly FAN fiction, but I did borrow some ideas and characters from Fringe, the TV show. Enjoy!
