Challenge: Palindrome Checker

Link to the challenge:

When you return something (either true or false), your function breaks the loops and ends.
Debug you code and see that your loops goes only through the first letter.

If the first and last letter is the same you always return true.

console.log(palindrome("not a palindrome")) // false
console.log(palindrome("not a palindrome n")) // true
