Very confused by the website. The submission page says to send a query letter to jennifer@theunteragency.com, although I noticed that that appears to be Jennifer Unter's email, and not Jen Nadol's. I followed the directions, though. I hope it gets through.

A personalised, helpful and kind rejection note. Historical fiction (only a subplot in my title) ‘has been difficult to place of late.’

Same day. Don't believe it was a form (might have been?). At least she's fast. Knows what she's looking for and this wasn't it, it seems.

Very prompt personal rejection emphasizing that it was a matter of personal preference regarding character voice.

Quick response time. She said my novel sounded "intriguing," but that historical fiction doesn't have a market right now, something I'm a little dubious about.

ER: Kind rejection complimenting the writing and story, but passed as memoirs are hard to place and there are a lot of travel memoirs on the market.

I appreciated the prompt responses and the professionalism.

"Thanks for your query, but I'm afraid this doesn't sound like a fit for me. I'm going to pass, but appreciate your getting in touch and wish you the best with this project.

Best,

Short but personal, with comment on what she's specifically looking for in middle grade. I appreciate that bit of info, as it lets me know it's not the manuscript per se, but that it doesn't fit what she wants. Plenty of agents will tell you that "it's not a fit" without telling you why, so I find Ms. Nadol's comments helpful.
