10/6 EQ with first fifty pages.
10/12 emailed me to ask for fifty pages in Word doc rather than pasted in email. Sent.
10/13 ER - Kind email stating she read it quickly as she was very interested, but isn't head-over-heels in love with it.
12/19 signed with another agent

I appreciate the quick communication and her kind words!

Requested during #DVpit. 67K YA contemporary.

Form rejection: Thanks for the opportunity to consider your work. I don’t think I’m the right agent for this, but I wish you the best of luck and keep querying! Maybe another agent will feel differently.
All the best,

UPDATE: I got a ER today from Rena. She requested the first 50 pages on October 31st.
She said:

Dear Victoria,

I’d love to take a look at the first 50 pages of this if it’s still available. Please send them attached as a word document.

Best,

Rena
