Rejection came from Stefanie Rossitto. I guess he must have passed it on to her.

I was sent a very polite FR from Matt Belford, who I suppose he passed the MS to. I'm very appreciative of the fast reply.

Rej: 5/27/21 from Natascha Morris which came as a huge shock because I had no idea the query was passed to her—I emailed Lane in April saying I had new pages, but apparently I should have sent that to Natascha instead? But how would I have known?

I wonder what's with the little pockets of ignored queries. I wonder if they're ones under consideration... Here's hoping! Lol.

Queried 10th of April 2021. MG science fantasy 43k.
Rejected on the 16th of April. A polite yet unhelpful reply. It seemed personalised, and is appreciated either way.
