Can anybody name me fairly recent science fiction novels (ideally decent sellers but not top award winners) that have any of the following characteristics or something along similar lines:
* A colonized protagonist who’s been indoctrinated to identify with the colonizers and has to rediscover their identity.
* An adolescent or child protagonist in a fairly grim adult novel.
* An adolescent protagonist suffering from war/colonial/childhood trauma in an adult novel, especially if “teen” is not really a cultural category the way it is for us.
* Low-tech sci fi geared toward exploration of intercultural conflict, especially with a serious tone.
For the Blake’s 7 fans out there, the story I know that is most like this book is the B7 episode “Horizon,” if you imagine Blake’s crew as much more secondary and the story being primarily about Ro as a teen.
Any reading suggestions appreciated.
