They Never Came Back by Caroline Cooney
When she was 10 Murielle's parents stole millions of dollars from their clients and left the country. Although Murielle was supposed to go with them she was left behind and ended up in foster care. Now 15 she has changed her name and is living her life as Cathy when her cousin Tommy recognizes her at summer school. Suddenly she is the center of attention again and is being pursued by the FBI agent who has been trying to use her to locate her parents and bring them back to the United States for trial. Murielle/Cathy is torn between her love for her parents and her desire to help out the people they hurt, including her.
