2/15 Sent notice of Offer of Representation
2/16 Victoria emailed to state that she'd read the full and though she loved my characters, she didn't think the MS story was quite right for her. Stated that she usually is not into Contemporary YA, with only a few exceptions (i.e., Katy Upperman). Helpful, kind, personalized letter.

Personalized but form-y sounding rejection: liked my voice and premise, but she felt like the pacing was off, so she doesn't feel that she will be the best advocate. Funny because most of the agents have told me that the pacing is fine and it moves well. So...*shrug* Not helpful, not going to put any stock to it because it's just way too subjective and too nit-picky honestly. Victoria seems nice though, at least it was personalized and not a form or a group rejection!

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work, but I am sorry to say that I do not think this material would be right for me, and therefore I would not make your most effective advocate. Please remember this is just one agent’s opinion, and there may well be other agents who feel differently.
Thank you for thinking of me, and best of luck to you.
I apologize for the form response, but the volume of queries I receive makes a personal reply impossible.
