I just got a rejection on a full request from this agent and I just have to say Torie (or maybe Dan? all the correspondence was from her?) is so sharp. For a middle grade novel, my manuscript has a lot of brainy threads in it and she fully grasped and appreciated all of them. She also gave the clearest assessment yet of what is missing and was very encouraging. Will definitely query again.
