Super-kind form rejection from her. I do actually really appreciate it when they're encouraging even when passing on your work.

There's much to love here, but I'm afraid that I'm not connecting to the story in the way that I need to. With that in mind, I'm afraid that I'm not the perfect fit for this project.

I'm sure that another agent will have the vision that I lack here. I wish you all the best!
