Fans of Gayle Forman’s young adult novel If I Stay got a closer look at the book’s movie adaptation Tuesday, after the film’s second trailer dropped. The story follows Mia (Chloë Grace Moretz), a cello player who is stuck in limbo after a tragic car accident, and must choose between life without her parents or death without her boyfriend.
The new trailer focuses on the idea of teenage love being ever-inconvenient, particularly in the face of death, a familiar subject for young adult fans thanks to bestseller-turned-box-office-blockbuster The Fault In Our Stars. It’s no surprise the heartbreaking themes are so similar; Dutton Publisher Julie Strauss-Gabel edited both books.
