Publisher's summary

This brief story was nominated for the Hugo and Nebula Award.

When her concerned parents investigate a treatment that could change her life forever, Hannah's world is thrown into turmoil. Unable to speak - at least not in ways most people can understand - Hannah struggles to face the question of who she really is, and who she wishes to become.

Originally published in the March 2011 issue of Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, "Movement" was marked Highly Recommended by Lois Tilton of Locus Reviews. Mundane-SF called it the "best story I have read so far this year" and SFRevu called it "a truly fine story". It is quite short, easily readable during a half-hour lunch break, and interweaves Hannah's sincere narrative with concepts drawn from neurology, entropy, social evolution and chaos theory.

Deeply moved by "Movement"

So beautiful, poignant, thought-provoking and self-realizing for someone with autism, anyone who knows and loves someone societally labelled this way and everyone else participating in the dance of life.
