At 15 your child has a significant say in where they should be housed, however if the ICL has stated that the case should be dismissed as child was not enthusiastic enough, I suspect that your daughter has only asked for the week about because this is what she believes you want. ICL people are very experienced people if they have stated it will be detrimental to your child, perhaps you should just accept that for now. Stay available for the child, let her know that you love her without making any demands on her. That way you will still get to see her and her family when she grows up and has a family of her own, push the issue and you may drive her away.
I agree with roger ICL are experienced though like anyone they cant get it right 100% of the time especially on such limited info. If your current arrangement isn't too much different I wouldn't push it. You could always seek a private review from companies such as relationspace though it can be quite costly
