What are two conflicts in "The Lovely Bones" and what are their resolutions?

Two conflicts occur in the main character herself:  her inability to overcome her desire to live and experience key situations, to resolve herself to the fact that it's over; and, her frustration or anger towards the man that hurt her.

These conflicts drive the entire book; without them, much of the plot, or interest, would be lost.  It is in overcoming these conflicts that the main character finally is able to move on to whatever is next, and she is able to help many other characters find resolution to their own conflicts.

I hope this helps!  Good luck!
