Hey johnny louifils ,

You are so close with your answer and I can see why you might be frustrated. the instructions aren't entirely clear on WHERE you should place the variable.

What you'll want to do is move your variable in front of your call to returnValue('str').

So it should look something like this.

var echo = returnValue('str');

I hope this helps you.
