Everything You Need to Ace English Language Arts in One Big Fat Notebook The Complete Middle School Study Guide
This book covers the expected middle school English curriculum in one guide. The format looks like a very well maintained school note book. It is useful for the person who wants to know what is expected of them, or for homeschoolers who are curious about 'what they are missing', or for folks who enjoy reading about English. It's pretty nice to have all the concepts laid out in a way that is not a workbook.
