Dear Thea,

Thank you so much for the privilege of reading your work.

I quite enjoyed [TITLE] and this is very much a book I would read. However, I do not believe I am the right agent for this one at this time, and so I will have to pass. You are a very strong writer, it's just one of those "not quite clicking" moments that are amorphous and hard to explain. I'm sorry I couldn't give you more actionable feedback!

As you know, this decision is very subjective, so what doesn't work for me may still be right for someone else. Your story deserves to be heard. Keep querying, even if it's out of spite!

I feel very fortunate to have read your work, and I hope you'll keep me in mind for future projects. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries. I will definitely be cheering you on!
