YA contemporary fantasy - 79,000 - I've held off on this one as long as I could. It's time to finally take the plunge and let the chips fall. So now I'll be standing over here, holding by breath, until I get an answer

Felt like a slightly personalized form?

"Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project. I had a chance to take a look at your query letter and sample pages. I know it’s not much fun to receive a rejection but despite a strong concept and solid writing, [TITLE] isn’t right for me. Persevere as another agent might be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript, and I’m sorry I can’t offer a referral."

I appreciate the nice response, although I know it was automated. I was hoping for the best but I guess this wasn't it.
