If a character writes something inside of a diary, how do I quote it? Do I quote just like anything else? Specifically I am talking about page 145 of the Washington Square Press paperback edition of Warriors Don't Cry.
The diary entry is part of a the book, is it not? If the section quoted is out of a book in a book, the same author wrote it in the same text as the rest of the book.
Just cite it like you would a normal quote.

On the off chance that I misread the question the first time, try to phrase your sentences in such a way to avoid quoting quotes.
Not---------> "Joey looked in his diary. He read "This too doth pass.""
Try this----> We see, in the scene where Joey is reading his diary, the strange quote "This too doth pass."
I hope this addresses the question, if not, I have no idea.
