“How am I supposed to decide this?” That’s the question that torments young Mia (Chloe Grace Moretz) through the entirety of If I Stay, the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Gayle Forman’s YA hit.

If I Stay follows Mia, a 17-year-old cellist who finds herself in a coma after a car accident that killed the rest of her family. The story then takes the audience through Mia’s memories and experiences as she tries to make the decision to either wake up or to die.

In a new preview video for the film, we get an in-depth look at Mia’s decision and some of the key memories that help her make it. Let’s just say that if the book made you cry, you might want to have a tissue nearby for this sneak-peek as well. After all, Moretz did tell EW that her goal with this film was to make the audience feel. “You want to watch something that actually means something and makes you feel and makes you want to be involved,” Moretz said. “That’s what I wanted to make and that’s what I strive to make.”

Move over, superheroes. Summer 2014 may just be the summer we all cry through our favorite YA adaptations.

Sobfest The Fault in Our Stars will be released in June, and now, the first trailer for the also-anticipated YA smash novel If I Stay is here. The film follows Mia (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teenage cellist, while she’s in a coma following a horrible car accident that’s killed the rest of her family. The novel takes the unconscious Mia on a journey through her memories as she tries to decide whether to die — or to stay.

“It’s much darker than I think most YA is,” Moretz told EW. “I want people to walk in and feel like they actually felt something, and learned something, and realized something different about life that’s more than just, ‘Oh, I saw this love triangle and it’s super sad because she chose the guy I didn’t like. And then the movie was over.’ And you’re like, ‘Okay, that’s pathetic.’ You want to watch something that actually means something and makes you feel and makes you want to be involved. That’s what I wanted to make and that’s what I strive to make.”

Translating a beloved book onto the big screen is a daunting proposition. But in the case of Gayle Forman’s teen sensation If I Stay, 17-year-old Chloë Grace Moretz isn’t nervous.

“Being a fan of the book myself, I kind of understood what I wanted to see from the character. And in listening to Gayle, who originated the character, I knew what she wanted to see,” Moretz told EW. “We all tried to stay incredibly faithful to the story. That’s why we’re making it.”
