Query sent 9/23/21
Rejection (below) received 9/24/21 -- At least it was quick!

Thanks so much for letting me consider your query, which I read with interest. Unfortunately, however, I will not be offering representation for the title at this time. Though it seems like it will be a great read, the book is not a great fit for my list. I didn’t connect with the writing in the sample, and thus I simply wouldn't be the best advocate for the manuscript. As you can imagine, this is an incredibly subjective business, and I wish you all the best in finding an agent who feels passionately about the project, and eventually an editorial home for the book.

Best of luck on your endeavors and thank you for your submission.
