Thanks for your patience while I looked at this. There's a lot to like about
the manuscript and I enjoyed the reading, but unfortunately, in the end I
don't think I'm quite the right agent for it. Part of that is that I don't
represent much in the YA space, and I'd very much encourage you to continue
contacting other agents about the book. I suspect it's just a matter of
getting it in front of enough people before you'll find the right person to
take it out for you. And of course, I wish you all the best with the book
going forward.

Form rejection, but honestly it's the nicest form rejection I've received: "Thanks for contacting me about your work. Unfortunately, I don't think it's quite a fit for me as an agent. However, I'd encourage you to contact other agents about your project, as it's often just a matter of showing the material to enough people before you connect with someone who'll be excited to represent it on your behalf. And of course, I wish you all the best of success with your work going forward."
