Just received a great personalized rejection on the first fifty pages of my YA scifi/fantasy MS. She detailed exactly what worked for her and what didn't, and what she thought would help fix it. It was fantastic feedback, and despite the long wait time, Ms. Wekstein seems like a great, knowledgeable agent and I would definitely query her again.
