This is her standard rejection letter:

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider your work.

While I am impressed by your creativity, I regret to say that I did not fall in love with the story in the way that I needed in order to take it on. As you know, these decisions are largely subjective and another agent or editor may have an opinion completely different from mine.

Thank you again for inviting me to read your work. I wish you the very best in getting your work placed.

Kind regards,

Thao Le

MG Fantasy (later became YA Fantasy, after a massive revision)

EQ: 2/8
CNR: 6/8
Nudge with offer: 7/26
Polite step-aside: 7/26

"Congrats on the interest. My YA fantasy list is quite full at the moment so I will have to pass. But this sounds like a really fun story and had it still be middle grade it would have been right up my alley."

Could be useful info to someone else, once she reopens queries!! I changed my book from a MG to a YA, and the YA secured me an offer of rep. But it sounds like Ms. Le is more interested in MG. :) Good luck, everyone!

I think this is the third time I've queried her and the first time I've received an actual rejection, so, progress?

Apr 4 tweet: "Finally finished reviewing January (yes, you read that right) queries and submissions. Apologies for the monstrous delay."

She doesn't reply to every query, but often posts updates on twitter about where she is in the slush pile.
