Longer than usual form rejection. Helpful, but not specific to your own work. It mentions the beginning not drawing her in, but there is no way to know if that really applies to your work. I wonder if the same form rejection is given if she doesn't like/isn't interested in the premise.

"Thank you so much for letting me review [book title], but I’m going to decline at this time. Unfortunately, your beginning just isn't pulling me in the way I had hoped. I know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project. Take heart: the publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agency is looking for. I strongly encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication."

She does add some helpful resources at the end.

Her rejection was kind, encouraging, and offered advice on other resources I could look into for finding literary agents.
