Hi Yusuf,

You've created your Class which is one of the steps of the challenge. To create a string you declare it as a variable of the String data type.

You don't need to include a code block for it as it's a public field (or member variable) inside the PictureBook class.

   public String mTitle;

All you need to do, is declare the access modifier, the data type and the name of the field/variable.

Thanks so much! :)
