Googling, I found several reviews of Mathilda Savitch by Victor Lodata that compared the main character to Holden Caulfield. Could that be it?

I think the author was female. Thanks for looking though! There was also purple mixed in with the tan/off white color on the cover

The picture on the front was a realistic faded picture I think of a women from behind

^ thanks I checked but no it’s not, I think I remember the front as having a purple font saying “the next female Holden Caulfield, or “like a female Holden Caulfield from Salinger himself”

With respect, - this book references Holden Caufield right on the cover, and it's in purple font. You sure this isn't it?

Sorry to butt in, but I also feel it's worth noting that books occasionally have their covers redesigned. Maybe you could try the ones that seemed close in description, but didn't look the same as you remember, and see if you can read a short preview on amazon (though I know that's not available for every book, unfortunately) and see if it sounds familiar? I hope you find it!
