6/24/21: EQ
8/13/21: Request for 2-3 more PBs to be sent. I'll polish my manuscripts for one more day and submit them on 8/15/21.
9/26/21: Lori said my PBs had more of a MG voice, and she asked me to send her my MG novel instead (which I had mentioned in my previous email). Sent same day, 9/26/21.
12/23/21: Personalized rejection with feedback that made clear she read and considered the whole manuscript.

Original query was PB, character-driven fiction, non-rhyming, 550 words
Follow-up query was MG, Spec Fic, 63K words

"While there is a lot to appreciate here, I did not connect with the pages in a way I must in order to move forward with representation at this time. Of course, this is a subjective business and other agent may feel differently, so I encourage you to continue querying to find the perfect home for your story."
