My daughter's grammar has a lot of room for improvement. I am looking for a book that would cover a lot and does not say what "grade" the book is. Well, I'd be happy with a book, workbook, or website.

grammarbytes. it's online and it's pretty decent.
What age range? How about Michael Clay Thompson materials? "Sentence Island", "Paragraph Town", "Essay Voyage" -- appealing stories for learning, lots of supporting materials for practice, and no explicit grade levels.
In that case, what about this:
We used Easy Grammar in grades 4-5. I'll probably pull out one of the higher level ones when my son is in high school, to cover the more advanced concepts. The one linked above is "Easy Grammar Plus" - no grade level in the title. It's intended for anyone grade 7 and up. My experience with EG is that the higher level programs still cover the basics, just more quickly.
It's not a "fun hands-on" kind of program, but it really is logical and "easy".
I second the "Easy Grammar" series. It only takes about 15 min/day and while it isn't colorful and full of games--that is actually a selling point here. My dd liked that it was no nonsense, get this DONE sort of thing. We have also used the MCT series (mentioned above)--and while I thought it was more of a pleasure, she didn't. She felt the stories were a bit too abstract and I repeatedly needed to help her understand the point.
