PLS, I’m not sure about the comma/quote thing (I hope he answers that, because I’d like to know the answer too), but unless you read stories that were printed in England, they change the punctuation (and even some wording) for the U.S. editions.

If it helps, that isn’t how its taught in my part of the UK, nor is it how the National Curriculum outlines it. Punctuation for direct speech goes inside the speech marks. The only way UK speech punctuation differs from US is for quotations, which isn’t the issue here 😀
