Awesome, not depressing, 200 pageish science fiction since 2014

[personal profile] egret is asking for a recommendation for her syllabus and, while she and i share some connections, we don't share all our connections, and i think some of you who aren't connected to her may have advice.

In addition to the above, the book should appeal to young people of all races and genders.

I am a lousy reader. I also read ebooks so i have NO idea how long they are. But from my notes i can pull up these:

I have notes about Join, and can't recall it (clearly?): https://elainegrey.dreamwidth.org/680396.html Also don't know about "not depressing."

The Ancillary series is probably longer than desired?

Jemsin's The Broken Earth -- is that more fantasy?

Becky Chambers' Wayfarers series has great world building and is about identity in many ways -- seems good for younger folks.

Any other ideas?
