Scout has a few conflicts. All of them have to do with her "Coming of age" in a racially charged environment. She must discover the true nature of her "benevolent phantom" Boo Radley as well as contend with the exposed prejudice and hypocrisy of many of her friends and neighbours. Perhaps the main conflict surrounds the trial of an innocent man, Tom Robinson, and Atticus's attempts to find justice for Tom in a racist environment.
