The sequel to Losers, Inc.

Twelve-year-old Julius Zimmerman is the former vice president of the defunct organization Losers, Inc. Ethan Winfield, the former president, no longer feels like a loser. But Julius still does, maybe because his mother thinks of him that way. To "improve" him, Mrs. Zimmerman signs Julius up for a summer course in intensive French and for a part-time job baby-sitting three-year-old Edison Blue. She also sets a summer reading goal for him. Julius doesn't ace the French class and doesn't do the required reading, but he does turn out to have a winning way with kids -- and adults -- and in the end proves to his mother that her criteria for success aren't the only ones.

Praise for You're a Brave Man, Julius Zimmerman

"Julius...is not looking forward to his summer: his mother, determined to make him an achiever, signs him up for Intensive Language Study in French and insists he get a job...Mills creates a humorous but touching portrait of a good kid whose abilities don't necessarily lie in the best rewarded areas." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This novel...rings satisfyingly true." --Publishers Weekly
