Confirmation receipt of query on 2/3
Requested MS on 3/2

She responded to my MS saying she'd try to read it as soon as she could, but that she was about 8 weeks behind on submissions. I really appreciated that note.

I read the rest of the book and liked it a lot, but although this was a close one, in the end I’m going to pass. ...(Lots of info regarding the manuscript and specifics about why it wasn't working)... This was a close one for me, though, and I like your writing and definitely felt you captured the angst of middle grade very well, in addition to the voices.

Try me again in the future if you don’t find representation.

(Following is from before the rejection:)
I submitted a MG humor to Jennifer back in April 2011, got a full request in May, and in July 2011, a form rejection.

The manuscript needed help, so I worked under a mentor, rewrote and re-re-revised, and asked on June 22, 2015 if she'd be interested in taking another look. In July she asked for 50 pages, and today (9/23/15) she sent this email: I read these pages and liked them – could you send me the rest?

Never give up.
