Adding a read-only property

It wants me to add parenthesis on the publisher property. I've tried several ways but nothing seems to be working

VideoGame.cs
namespace Treehouse.Models
{
    public class VideoGame
    {
        public int Id {get;set;}
        public string Title{get;set;}
        public string Description{get;set;}
        public string[] Characters{get;set;}
        public string Publisher{get;set;}

        public string DisplayText
        {
            get
            {
                return Title + "("Publisher")";
            }
        }
    }
}

You're pretty close, but you need concatenation operators ("+") between the variables and literal strings in each spot where they are joined.

The challenge is also expecting a space between the title and the open parenthesis.
