What am I leaving out??

I'm positive indentation is ok this time

strlen.py
def just_right(string):
  if(len(string) < 5):
    print("Your string is too short")
  elif(len(string) > 5):
    print("Your string is too long")
  else:
    return True

:point_right: The challenge asks you to return the strings, not print them.

You also left off the periods at the end of the sentences, but that apparently doesn't prevent it from passing. And those if expressions don't need parentheses around them.
