Fixer 13 is the first book in The Forevers, featuring Jayne Wu
Jayne Wu is a brilliant and inexplicably-lucky 13-year-old in a future Earth obsessed with its own survival. The Swarm, a meteor field billions of kilometres across, will soon smash through the solar system, destroying all life and possibly the planet itself. The only hope for humankind's survival are the biomes - twelve asteroid-size escape vessels constructed in orbit to travel to and colonize far distant worlds with the best Earth can offer.
Jayne - whose nickname is Thirteen - wants only to leave the Nursery, study to be a Technical Electrical Mechanical Fixer and become part of the great adventure. And, of course, play GravBall. But Jayne's mind is extraordinary and she soon attracts attention from the organized crime Consortium, the Sentinels, the World Police and the Forevers - a cabal of ultra-rich who will stop at nothing to subvert society's colonization plans to their own diabolical ends. They all want to use her. In order to survive Jayne must decide who to trust.
