JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Traversing the DOM Parent Traversal

I used remove.parentNode('removeMe') but that also did not work

what aam i doing wrong

var removeMe = document.querySelector('.remove_me');
var parent = removeMe.parentNode;
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>Parent Traversal</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
            <li class="remove_me">Good bye!</li>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

You set the variable removeMe to refer to the element you want to remove from the DOM. Use that variable instead of the string in removeChild. 'removeMe' as a string is not a valid node but your reference is.
