Comments:

Thank you for sending me a portion of your manuscript. I enjoyed reading it.

While your pages are interesting and it's a cute story idea, I didn’t quite
connect with the voice as much as I would have liked.

I wish you the best in finding the right agent who can successfully champion
your project.
