As others have mentioned this was essentially a form rejection with slight personalization, which I honestly think is amazing for an agent who reads the volume she does.

"While I enjoyed your voice, I'm afraid the premise didn't fully grab me. Keep in mind, this industry is very subjective and, as such, I would encourage you to continue submitting in the hopes of finding the right agent for you."

A slightly personalized form rejection, loved the premise but found the action narrative "jumpy and hard to follow." She's the only agent to make that specific note, no one else thought the same about my first chapter, so I'm going to respectfully disagree, but it was nice that she at least gave a tiny bit of personalization even if it was subjective and not particularly helpful.

Picture Book

Very encouraging form letter rejection, exactly like the one posted by @JJProbe below, but with an added note that I assume is specific to my story. She added; "While I enjoyed it and appreciate the message, I'm afraid I wasn't as passionate about it as a prospective agent should be prior to offering representation." I feel like I almost landed it, but still, nicest rejection I've received so far.

Encouraging, but form letter rejection nonetheless:

Thank you for sharing your project with me and for your patience as I reviewed it. I appreciate the opportunity and am always grateful for the chance to consider what someone has poured time, energy, and heart into creating.

Unfortunately, after careful review, I'm passing on this project. Keep in mind, this industry is very subjective and, as such, I would encourage you to continue submitting in the hopes of finding the right agent for you.

I wish you the best of luck on your writing journey.
Sincerely,
Kari
