Sarah read and got back to me quickly. She outlined what she liked and what she didn't and ended up stepping aside/passing.

Sarah was very nice on the phone, but ultimately, I chose another agent. Note: she now lives in London.

I believe the rejection was a form letter, but it was kind. Here is the text: "Many thanks for your submission – I appreciate you thinking of me and Greenhouse.
I’m sorry to say that I’ve decided to pass on your work. The children’s and YA markets are very competitive, and I have to feel a high degree of confidence in a story to take it on. I just don’t have quite enough conviction that this is one for me at the moment, though please bear in mind that another agent may feel differently – it’s such a subjective business. I’m also sorry that I can’t offer editorial comment or advice on your story; we receive such a high volume of submissions. If you haven’t already done so, please see our website and my blog – links below – which will tell you more about what we seek and writing craft in general.
Best wishes, and thanks for giving me the opportunity to consider your work.
