This was the original title of Waiting For a Girl Like You all because I wanted Alex to live on the 10th floor of her dorm and for Marc to have to climb those stairs to get to her. Marketing didn’t like it, but the scene where they are arguing all the way up those 20 flights remains.
My kindergartners in Korea learned this song for the Christmas pageant. For weeks they walked down the hall singing “Ding dong ding dong ding dong.”
You know that first scene where Maureen is obsessing about Bear maybe being a serial killer and how she’s going to end up rolled up in a rug? That came from this song. Her being chopped up into little pieces was edited out of the book. A tad gruesome for me.
