YA sci-fi Teens no parents on spaceship they call "Ship"
Join LibraryThing to post.
It's a fiction chapter book written a couple decades ago at least.
No parents on the ship, the teens refer to "Ship" as an authority figure.
There is conflict on the ship between the teens and they eventually land on a planet to inhabit.
Girl is bitter towards "Ship" for keeping secrets from them but eventually sends it on its way on decently good terms.
#1 in a series of at least 2, maybe 3 books.
This sounds a lot like the 1985 Colsec Trilogy by Douglas Hill. In particular book 1, Exiles of Colsec.
When a space craft carrying twelve youthful offenders, who have in someway rebelled against the Earth's harshly authoritarian society, crash lands on an alien planet, the six survivors must contend with the planet's hostile life forms.
