Is there a good database for YA fiction of the 90's?

I've been searching for a series of YA novels that I read in the late 80's/ early 90's.
I seem to remember the action in these books involving a group of teens on another planet, where one of the girls had shocking pink hair. I think there was some sort of strange dog/pet. I think the phrase "in loco parentis" was used quite a bit-- maybe they had robot minders? I'm not totally clear on that. Of course these are very slight plot points and googling hasn't turned up anything.
This definitely wasn't Great Literature, but I'd love to revisit this, and some of the other books that I loved back then. Has anyone seen a database where I can search for some of the disposable YA paperbacks of the 90's?
