"Thank you for sending me your query.

I'm sorry not to request the full manuscript or offer to represent you, but this isn't a good fit for my list. Publishing is very subjective, and other agents may well feel differently.

I wish you all success finding it a home."

"Thank you for sending me your query.

I'm sorry not to request the full manuscript or offer to represent you. Despite the appealing premise and voice, I'm just not as enthusiastic as I need to be. Publishing is very subjective, and other agents may well feel differently.

I wish you all success finding it a home!"

Leslie ultimately passed on my work after a full request and my nudge from an offer of rep. She is so kind and helpful, I highly recommend querying her! Anyone would be lucky to work with her.
