My apologies for the delay in responding—I’ve fallen behind on responding to queries due to some health issues I’ve was dealing with over the last few months.
I appreciate you reaching back out to me regarding your submission. From the age of your protagonist and the themes you mention in your query letter, this feels like a manuscript more focused on young adult or new adult readers. For that reason, I’m going to have to pass on this project.
I wish you the best of luck moving forward, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.
