Agent seems to strongly suggest trying other agents at BookEnds whenever she rejects. Since it seems to be part of her regular form letter about not being hooked enough to request the manuscript, I don't really feel encouraged to try another agent there, given that I've already ruled the others out as a likely fit. They sound like a really good agency, though, really fair-minded about what authors have a right to expect from an agent.

Good morning! I have replied to all submissions received prior to July (although I'm still waiting for some requested material including those I flagged as high priority reads). I have a number of queries to get through from July. #queryupdate

EQ (form): 7/9/18
FR: 7/9/18 (sent same day via QM)
ER: 7/24/18. Kind response saying she is selective about new projects and didn't fall for the writing like she might have hoped.

So sad because Jessica is a rock star and seems like a great author advocate. Worth a try! Good luck to everyone waiting to hear.

Jessica is a great. I have nothing but nice things to say about her. Twice I've submitted to her, and both times she rejected with notes. Though I didn't agree with her notes on this latest pass (I think writers ultimately have to listen to criticism, and act only on what they agree with), her previous notes were spot on, and made the book that much better. I think she would be a great agent for anyone to have.
