YA Magical realism. I got the confirmation email from Query manager but haven’t heard anything else. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or if it was missed.

I reached out recently about a query that seemed to be missed and they said that it had made it past the first round of readers and Kristin was still considering it! Not sure what the exact method is because some stuff does get requested quickly too. If you haven't heard after 6-8 weeks I'd follow up.
