I love this book!
The main character Junior goes through both internal and external conflict:
INTERNAL CONFLICTS occur when a character is arguing with him/herself over some sort moral or ethical dilemma. It's that "should I, or shouldn't I?" debate that we all encounter when facing tough decisions.
EXTERNAL CONFLICTS occur when a character battles any outside force. The primary type of external conflict in this novel is human vs. human.
