They Never Came Back, by Caroline B. Cooney
Caroline Cooney at her most Face-on-the-Milk-Carton ridiculous best/worst whatever it is. Implausable drama. Cathy enrolls in an intensive summer Latin course, only to have another student confront her, claiming that she is really Murielle (Murielle? Really?) his long lost cousin, the child of a hedge fund managing couple who had to flee the country when their fund collapsed and it was about to come out that they had stolen the money. Murielle was supposed to have been with them when her parents left the country, but her aunt wouldn't take her to the airport, and subsequently lost Murielle to child protective services... it isn't worth it to type this nonsense.
I am going to go read something good to wash my brain.
