Brave Story. As I was reading it, I kinda realized I kinda write a lot like this book. In form especially. It's translated from Japanese though so I don't know if that's good or bad.

The way they do dialogue and set up scenes I really enjoyed. It's a book I can learn a bit from about structure.

There was a part where they used like example - "I don't know why you had to do that, but I like it, " he grinned.

But the one I was looking was like "This is how it's supposed to be," he intoned, "especially when your grade is on the line."

I wish I had a book that set rules for how dialogue is supposed to be arranged with punctuation and capitalization with descriptives. That always bugs me. I wing it by what I've seen in books and can recall and what feels right but my form tends to get rather vanilla.

Any thoughts?

Here's my best inkling.

"I am dialogue. Ruler of words." He chuckled.

"I am dialogue," he chuckled. "Ruler of words."

"I am," he chuckled, "dialogue. Ruler of words." (this may not work because it could require a comma to break).

"I am dialogue!" he chuckled. "Ruler of words!"

PS - I love that there's a boy with the embarrassing name of Katsumi in this ^^.
