Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. Despite not being able to offer a more personalized response or a referral, do know that your submission for HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO was reviewed. Even though your project isn't the right fit, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up.
Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

Heard back with a rejection and it was very sweet and polite.

8 days later is quite quick I think!

She said my YA Fantasy wasn't the right fit for their agency whereas they rep the same YA Fantasy as my WIP :/ I just think she wanted to clear her inbox. But she did tell me not to give up and hope I find the right agent :D
