What are publishers looking for in series books aimed at 8-12 year old girls?

Discussion started on


I'm curious for everyone's feedback - judging by the success of franchises like The Babysitters Club and the American Girl books, I have to imagine publishers are always keeping their eyes out for the next big series for young girls.

So, what do you think publishers and editors are looking for, specifically, in new series books for the 8-12 year old girl demographic?  What are some recent breakout successes and what has made them successful?
