Echoing what @vickipet said! I originally queried Linda Epstein, who requested the full and passed my MS to Caitlin. She and Linda offered co-representation.

I went with another agent (I had five offers of rep), but I would totally recommend querying Caitlin! She's whip smart, passionate about stories, and is building her list. She is very editorial and has a sharp eye for craft.

11/9/20 Query to Mandy Hubbard (MG Contemporary)
2/15/21 Full request (from Mandy)
4/7/21 Notification from Caitlin White that my manuscript was passed to her, phone call set up
4/13/21 Offer of Representation from Caitlin!
4/23/21 Offer Accepted!!
I ended up with multiple offers, but I chose Caitlin due to her professionalism, excellent story sense, and enthusiasm. Yes, she's new to agenting, but she has excellent editorial skills and the full support of the agency behind her. Linda Epstein will be co-repping.
Don't hesitate to query her. She's amazing!

Thought my prose and my balance of humor and handling trauma was great, but didn't jive with the worldbuilding. She was very nice in her rejection, and I would recommend querying her. She seems like a really lovely person.

Very kind and said it wasn't what she was looking for at the moment (I wondered, but thought I'd give it a shot anyway--you never know and it couldn't hurt). I'm glad I did query her as she provided a list of resources which I'll share below.
YA MR 58,000

[PublishingCrawl.com] (a group blog featuring agents, editors, sales reps, and authors)

[absolutewrite.com/forums/] (A discussion board, with a fantastic YA section as well as a "background check" section for agents, and a place to post your query for critique. You must have a thick skin, but it's an excellent resource!)

[susandennard.com/for-writers/] (A curated list of resources created by a talented, New York Times bestselling YA author!)

[https://queryshark.blogspot.com/] (It's not often updated, but I find the archives so helpful for comments on queries to help guide writers.)
