Julius has survived 6th grade with the help of his firend Ethan and the Losers, Inc. Club. Now he's looking forward to having the summer off. What he gets instead is Intensive Language School in the mornings and babysitting for 3 year old Edison Blue in the afternoons. If he didn't think he was a loser before, these experiences may help. Julius has to endure learning the Hokey Pokey in French and coping with a 3 year old who refuses to be potty trained. Find out how Julius copes in YOU'RE A BRAVE MAN, JULIUS ZIMMERMAN.
