Very warm, personal, detailed email about why she chose not to offer representation. Loved the writing and stories, but didn't love the novel-in-stories structure. Wanted a single narrative.

Fingers crossed! She seems like an amazing agent.

I'm not sure if she actually changed agencies. CAA acquired ICM this summer, but they seem to be keeping it separate. Alexandra's twitter and Publisher's Marketplace page still say ICM.
