rspec syntax error

Can anyone help with this error message?

rb:11: syntax error, unexpected keyword_end, expecting tSTRING_DEND (SyntaxError)

Here is my code for the index_spec.rb file

require 'spec_helper'

describe "Viewing todo items" do
    let!(:todo_list) {TodoList.create(title:"Grocery list", description:"Groceries")}

    def visit_todo_list(list)
        visit "/todo_lists"
        within "#todo_list_#{todo_list.id"}" do 
            click_link "List Items"     
    end
end

it "displays the title of the todo list" do
    visit_todo_list(todo_list)
    within("h1") do
        expect(page).to have_content(todo_list.title)
    end
end

it "displays no items when a todo list is empty" do
    visit_todo_list(todo_list)
    expect(page.all("ul.todo_items li").size).to eq (0)
end

it "displays item content when a todo list has items" do

    end
end

Hello Asa,

Your visit_todo_list function has an extra quotation mark on line 8 after .id. It should look like this.

within "#todo_list_#{todo_list.id}" do 

I hope this helps.
