Another agent bites the dust

I received a rejection from LAW today. It's a nice letter though with some kind comments; it reads as follows.

"Dear Melissa,

Thank you so much for giving us the chance to consider your material but I am sorry to say that I do not think we are the right agency to represent your work. You write movingly, and it's clear that your own experiences have helped you develop a thought- provoking and authentic character in Megan. Unfortunately we feel that your work is not quite right for us.

Please do not be too discouraged and we wish you the very best of luck as you go forward with your writing."

I'd love it if just one agency asked to see the rest of my manuscript as I feel three chapters is not enough to base an opinion on. Eight more agents to go.
