You have to use the keyword "string" with no upper case letters and then the name of the variable. In this case "bookTitle" and you finish the statement with a semi-colon.

string bookTitle;

If you need to assign a value to that variable you have to use the "equal" (=) operator and the string that you want to assign to that variable:

string bookTitle = "1984";

I hope that helps a little bit
