Calling B for Butterfly is the only Louise Lawrence book that I have on my bookshelves. It's the tale of 4 disparate teens who end up having to look after a baby and toddler when the spaceship they're on crashes into an asteroid. I still read it now and it's a beautiful, if short, tale of loss and maturity. Glyn is the angry young steward who ends up having to take charge, Ann is a quiet mouse who displays quiet sincerity and inner strength, Matt is studious and gentle whereas Sonya is spoiled and entitled. These four who would ordinarily clash have to deal with a baby and hyperactive toddler as well as their situation.
The book is a pressure cooker of emotion and it showcases realistic teens in an impossible situation. Without spoiling the events of the book, I applaud Lawrence for the way she handled the characters and their emotions. In short it's a beautiful book with impressive character development and if you can ever find a copy, I would heartily recommend it.
