Variables for JSONObject

I am having a little trouble with this challenge. Using the example from the video as we have been building the weather app brought me to where I am now.

I am curious as to what I am doing wrong to cause a compile error.

// A JSONObject variable named 'jsonData'
// was loaded from the data.json file.
private CurrentDetails getCurrentDetails(String jsonData)  {
  JSONObject details = new JSONObject(jsonData);
  String name = details.getString("name");
  String publisher = details.getString("publisher");
  String language = details.getString("language");
  return CurrentDetails;
    "name":"Treehouse Book Series",
            "title":"HTML5 Foundations",
            "author":"Matt West",
            "title":"CSS3 Foundations",
            "author":"Ian Lunn",

You only need to deal with setting the strings to the appropriate data (like you have done), you don't need to define a method.

In the context of this quiz, CurrentDetails does not exist and jsonData is already a JSONObject.
