I met Joanna at a pitch fest. She's intelligent, business-like and pleasant. She represents the Divergent series. She's top notch if you can get her. Suzie Townsend is her right-hand woman. You may hear from Joanna through Suzie. Put this agent high on your list.

Not sure how to report this, but last night (3/15) I was searching through my old query responses and found a full request from 2/16 - a month ago - that I had missed! It was not from Joanna herself but Suzie Townsend, another agent at New Leaf with whom she had shared my query. I frantically sent off the MS with my apologies and am now praying she'll still be interested. Aw, man, I can't believe that happened.
It's adult literary fiction 80k by the way
