I got a very nice personalized rejection. She has clients with works that are too similar, so she couldn't take this project on, but encouraged me to submit future work.

Definitely will! Thanks Melissa!

PB - was a DVpit Request

"Dear [name],

Good to hear from you; thanks for sending me your query! As a fan of puns and wordplay, I count it a privilege to have read your work.
Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the best agent to represent [Title] at this time. I appreciate the concept, but I'm having a hard time following a clear arc from problem to resolution. (Specifically, there's a new problem--[example redacted]--introduced in the middle that seems to throw the trajectory off course, in my opinion.)
Of course, this is a subjective business, and I have no doubt that another agent will feel differently. I wish you all the best in finding the perfect home for your writing, and please feel free to keep me in mind for future projects, if you'd like."

Shortly after, I received two offers of representation based upon this manuscript.
