What about MIDDLE school math texts?

There's been a lot of discussion about the elementary school text adoption, with people hating on Everyday Math. What about middle school? My kid has one big, hardcover, regular kind of textbook. They don't use that one too much, but that's the one I like better. In addition to that one, he brings home softcover, thin, books, that are each about a different topic. Each topic lasts about a month, so that's how long he has these thin books for. These thin books do not lay out how to do the problems, they set it up for the kids to figure it out themselves, and my kid has a real problem with it. I find it hard myself to figure them out to help my kid. Is this the middle school equivalent to Everyday Math for the elementary schools set? Why isn't anyone talking about middle school?
