Amy requested a partial after 90 days, and was then quick with her rejection; it was semi-personal and kind. :-)

9/18/22 - Form Query - query letter, synopsis, pitch, comps, target audience, first 10 pages of MS
82K - YA Contemporary Romance

12/18/22 - Form Rejection - I'm a bummed for a rejection but thankful for a response since it's around Christmas time, and she's probably swamped! :) Her response is below:

Thank you so much for submitting sample pages of ______ and for considering me as a possible agent for this work. After careful consideration, I'm going to politely pass at this time.

I'm sorry this wasn't a match, but I wish you the very best of luck!

Sincerely,
Amy

One line of feedback which wasn't phrased in a particularly kind manner but I suppose is better than nothing. What with it being so brief and not an R&R, though, I would hope to get the same feedback from another agent before doing an overhaul revision.

I received a partial request (first 50 pages) but it shows on the timeline as a full request. Has another else experienced that?

don't take it to heart!! she could have been having an off day, or she might send rejections like this more often than what's posted here!
