Form letter. “Not a right fit for her list”. I thought that I got into her maybe pile but I was probably wrong. Oh well.

Got an email today stating that she hadn't read my manuscript but it is still under consideration. The email gave clear directions on how to proceed should I want to continue with the submission after she has moved to Jabberwocky.
Thus far, very professional and clear.

@mfdeluna and @Wimoon - this has happened to me twice, and each resolved differently. One agent did take the query with them when they switched, while with another, I had to re-query at the new agency. I'm in the same boat here with Bridget; hoping she clarifies things soon.
