Hey there!
I'm currently doing my EPQ, but I'm a bit lost when it comes to quotations, I'm studying various texts and if I were to quote but change the subject would I put the changed word into brackets?
E.G original quote: "I don't want to go to my mum's party!" Said Kiki

Changed, : Kiki tells us that she doesn't "want to go to (her) mum's party"...

Is that how i should do it?
Thanks,

You don't use quotation marks for indirect speech.

Kiki tells us that she doesn't want to go to (her) mum's party.
