Oh, yes, I remember that one- it was good (although I think when they meet the others at the end, it works out a bit too neatly.) I guessed at either Sherri Tepper's True Game series, except it isn't futuristic, or Futuretrack Five, but there's no game involved in that. 
Must reread some Monica Hughes. What's the sequel to Devil On My Back called?
