quotations when the name of a short story that is in quotation marks is at the end of a sentence whe
where does the punction go in "The Stray"?
What theme did your group pick for "The Necklace"?
The Grammarly Handbook [http://handbook.grammarly.com/] says:
The punctuation that comes with the quote stays within the quote, and the punctuation that comes with the unquoted sentence stays outside the quote.
If you end a sentence with a quote that contains end-of-sentence punctuation (period, exclamation mark or question mark), there’s no need for anymore punctuation at the end of the sentence: just let the quote’s punctuation do all the work.
The man said, “I shall be re-born!”
So I asked, “Where did you get that outfit? Your mother’s childhood dress-up box?”
So your sentence is correct as it is.
