Updating Home Ed books thread to bump up for information.

Free Range Education: How Home Education Works Terri Dowty (ed) Hawthorn Press

It is a UK book (many are American) and each chapter is written by a different family about their experience - it gives a good idea of the range of experience.

A handbook for families considering or starting out in home education. The book is full of family stories, resources, burning questions, humour, tips, practical steps and useful advice so the reader can choose what best suits his or her family situation.

Does anyone know of any books about home ed specifically for secondary age, apart from the Gareth Lewis one? I'm in need of an enthusiasm/confidence boost now I have a year six-er who is older than her age!
