@Jessrabbit: You can be sure this agent (and others) view comments left on this platform. It's a very small community, and they talk. You're right, it is subjective. Very. Leaving resentful comments makes agents glad they didn't take you on as a client.

Many people never get one MS read, let alone "any others". I know the query trenches can be frustrating, but I would recommend moving on.

Queried Ms. Hart back in late June, early July and got a request for a full today! I had initially given up on this thinking I wouldn't hear back at all so this was definitely a surprise! For anyone still waiting, don't feel too discouraged if it takes a while.

Rejected 11/6: Said that she 'didn't fall in love with the story as much as she had hoped'.

She mentioned she thought the voice was too old for YA, even though my protagonist is 18. Hmmm....

Hmm... I queried on 9/9 and haven't got a response, but those who queried after me already did. Maybe my query got lost in the cyber space?
