FR - 06/26/2021
Form rejection on full request on 10/27/2021 - I truly enjoyed the read and found you to be quite talented. With that said, however, I am regrettably declining. I'm currently being very picky about what I take on, knowing that I won't do a good job with a manuscript unless I completely fall head over heels in love with it. And, while I really liked what I read, I didn't have that intense love for it that you deserve from an agent. I wish I had better news.

Please continue querying this project as I know there's an agent out there who will connect with this story better than I did.

Best wishes to you!

Same day full request.

Rejection sent Sept 25
Very short and unhelpful form rejection on a full with no feedback. Pretty disappointing but it seems to be more common not to get personalized feedback from agents on fulls these days. Sigh.
