Star Bringer by Tracy Wolff and Nina Croft exceeded all my expectations

Ohh man where to even start?

The synopsis had me at its reference to Firefly, and honestly it was such an apt comparison. Think Firefly, but with a much younger cast and not as dark as the show can get. Despite how young the majority of the characters are, there still manages to be the hardened bitterness of certain characters that you might expect from a tale that takes place in space with a group of misfits, some of whom have had to do some questionable things to stay alive.
