Withdrew my query because I was no longer interested in being repped by her, and Darlene replied that she's actually not representing YA anymore!

Rejection with a personalized reason why, which was nice. Said she's not a fan of magical realism or speculative fiction, even as a small story device.

Submitted in the morning and got a rejection that evening. The letter felt genuine and read as very respectful.

Rejection said she is not a good fit for sci-fi/fantasy/futuristic/magic realism

Seems like she's sending proof of receipt emails by hand, because hers is a reply to the initial email I sent and it says that if you end up altering your query, you can reply to the reply email. Probably doesn't mean much; I just found it interesting.
