She does not leave the family's property and rarely spends time out of the house. Her existence is a secret to the outside world. <br><br> Layla is ultimately removed from the SAHAL's home and placed with a loving foster family, the IBRAHIMS. She is finally able to enroll in school, learn English, and become a "normal" teenager. The story concludes with Layla at age 18, awarded more than $150,000 in restitution in a court case against the SAHALS. She is reunited with Emilio when he returns to the country at age 18 with a student VISA.
