PHP Integrating PHP with Databases Using Relational Tables Using a Prepared Statement

Bummer: Make sure the function is returning an array of members.

I cant see my mistake...

function get_member($id) {

    try {
      $results = $db->prepare(
      "SELECT member_id 
      FROM members 
      WHERE member_id = $id"
    } catch (Exception $e) {
      echo "bad query";

    $members = $results->fetch();
    return $members;

Hint: The problem is with this line: WHERE member_id = $id".
