iOS > Modifying the Master-Detail Template: Code Challenge 2/3

What I need to do:

Access the third item in the array and store in a string variable called 'bookTitle'.

My solution (which is not working):

NSArray *booksArray = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Hamlet", @"King Lear", @"Othello", @"Macbeth", nil];

NSString *bookTitle = [NSString initWithObject: [booksArray objectAtIndex: 2]];

I'm probably missing something obvious but my googling turned up no solution.

That's almost right but this is what the CC engine is looking for:

NSArray *booksArray = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Hamlet", @"King Lear", @"Othello", @"Macbeth", nil];

NSString *bookTitle = [booksArray objectAtIndex:2];

Thanks! I was so close!
