Not sure if I have this in the right area, so I'm sorry if I don't. I am wondering about the correct way to add a note/letter in a story. This is a novel, if that makes any difference. The main character is reading a note that was left for her. Should it be in italics or not? I have found a couple of books that had letters in them, but they were both done differently. If it makes any difference, this is a YA novel and the note is short and casual (not like a letter from a bank or anything). Is it better to just sort of summarize the note through narration than include it word for word? Thanks, guys!
