How am I supposed to write the second line of code? So far I have this: public class String mTitle { }

Where do I have to position the String?

public class PictureBook {
  public class String mTitle {

A string does not need {}

public class PictureBook {

public String mTitle;


Strings defined as member variables, unless static. Typically do not have a value given to them. So it would look like the above. You also do not need the {}. The string declaration isn't a method and or a constructor.

Let me know if this helps you by selecting it the best answer if it works for you.
