Her page says she's open to every genre except horror, but her QueryManager page didn't have sci-fi in the drop down. I picked fantasy, since my manuscript is closer to fantasy anyway, just set in space. Fingers crossed!

MG Literary/Portal Fantasy
Personalized rejection: July 1, 2021--very kind and said the structure of the novel is "fascinating" but not right for her and this type of structure would be better suited for a different agent who has the vision for it.

*Bummed about this one. She's lovely, and anyone who gets to work with her is lucky! Onward!

Same "tough market" rejection as below.

She sounds like the perfect agent, but I am in the same boat: No replies at all.

Queried in Feb 2021 and nada.

Going to CNR. With such a backlog, I can't see a chance in hell of standing out when she has to plow through it.

"Thank you for your query and for thinking of me at Greenhouse. I’m sorry to say that [book title] doesn’t feel quite right for my list. The market is tough, and to take a book on, I need to feel strongly that I’m the right representative who can place your work with a publisher.

This business is so subjective—many agents may feel differently from me. I hope so, and that you soon find the right person to represent you!

All best,
Chelsea"
