[76k YA Sci-fi]
EQ: 5/8 via online form. It looks like we may be a good match, so I definitely have my fingers crossed for this one!
FR: 5/12 Yay! Let's keep those fingers and toes crossed, shall we? :)
For anyone who's curious, the request came with a polite note saying she tries to keep a 3 month turnaround time, but to nudge with any offers of rep.

Valerie is a very sweet and approachable agent. She remembered my previous draft and asked me to talk about my journey and the changes I made for the new revision. When I replied, she said that she was looking forward to reading. What really struck me was that she also said, "Thank you for giving me another chance." Anyone who works with Valerie is very lucky!
