Replied with a kind note right after that she's stepping side because she won't have time to read, but wished me luck.

Haven't heard a peep yet, so either she's still considering mine or it got lost somewhere.

Form rejection. Disappointing on a partial request.

Thank you for sending me a portion of your manuscript. I enjoyed reading it.

While your pages are interesting and very well-written, unfortunately, I didn’t quite connect with the characters as strongly as I had hoped.

I wish you the best in finding the right agent who can successfully champion your project.
