KIRKUS REVIEW

Attired in her Easter-egg getup, Linda Lou climbed into Violent Violet"" and in case the title hasn't clued you in, ""Violent Violet"" is Linda Lou's racing Spitfire painted lavender with sprays of violets. Convinced by her newly-found poor and ugly beau that she must get involved in something, Linda Lou tries sports car racing (the official sport of her millionaire family), and expresses a determination to beat her brother's girlfriend Joy on the track. On the sidelines she learns to like and appreciate a taciturn mechanic and his ad-exec type wife, wins over Joy in the end, then renounce the feud, etc., etc. A poor little rich girl with a monotonous line of witty chatter is hardly likely to inspire sympathy or empathy: paint her purple, put her in a sling of a plot stretched thin and let her go--but not far.
