86k YA South Asian fantasy

Absolutely disappointed that this was a form rejection. On both an event pitch like AND a full manuscript! Also, it looks like other people got personalized rejections so I wonder why mine didn't get the same level of attention.

Same pattern as below.
Only wanted a query letter in her form. Maybe ask for sample pages instead of a full manuscript from everyone, if you're not even going to read it.
