Thank you for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately I don’t believe I’m the right person to represent this effectively.

Publishing is a subjective industry by nature so don’t be discouraged. I wish you the best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work with the enthusiasm it deserves.

Gonna take a page out of everyone else's book (lol) and close this one out. Went ahead and queried Rebecca Strauss *fingers crosses*.
UPDATE: so he did actually get back to me which is nice. Got a polite form letter saying that it's not for him but publishing is highly subjective so keep at it :3
