Very kind rejection. She complimented my writing and provided detailed feedback on what could be improved. She seems like a great agent.

ER: 4/26

Very ego boosting rejection. Compliment my writing and premise, but she wasn't connecting to the project. Very much an "it's not you, it's me" rejection. Left an invitation to query future works. Sadly, no actionable feedback to improve the manuscript.
