Hi there, Monica Wilson ! I received your request for assistance and you're doing terrific! But you were supposed to do something a bit differently. The challenge asks you to to assign the result in a variable named bookTitle, but you are storing it in a variable named entry, so when the challenge goes to look up the value in bookTitle it can't find anything there.

Simply change:

string entry

to:

string bookTitle

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

ok thanks.
