For 9th grade level writing, I recommend Wordsmith Apprentice. It's purely a writing course, not literature.
My recommendation for a Lit. class is to read good literature. You can find great recommended reading lists online. We've been going through the Bob Jones Literature book, just because we already had it and it gives a good overview of the concept of literature.
The ideas from the other posters look good, too.
Sounds like you have lots of options to choose from!
