Action/Drama YA 107k
Query with sample: 7/2016
Full requested: 9/2016, but no confirmed receipt. No response after four months. Considering that she's currently pregnant with twins and an author, I expect that her attention is divided. This is a shame, because she's a friendly agent who certainly seems invested in YA and the industry in general.
Nudge: 2/7/17
CNR: 2/16/17 - She's active on Twitter and with other writers, so I can only conclude that her silence is deliberate. I was saddened to CNR this one, but I know better than to put all my hopes in one agent. I wish her very well.

Has anyone heard back from a full request lately? I sent mine back in February last year and sent a follow-up 6 months later. Guess I should probably close this one out, but figured I'd check first!
