This chapter documents the literacy learning lives of two young Australians now in their early twenties. Both were originally informants in studies of literacy development. The original studies were longitudinal, so in each case there was already a story of change, especially in the young people’s identities as school. The case studies presented here, Tessa and Cruz, tell different stories of learning literacy at school, teaching that makes a difference and raise questions about predictable normative developmental trajectories. Both young people have taken up, albeit selectively, valuable literacy and learner dispositions from school and their wider everyday worlds.
