The Girl in the Italian Bakery Author: Kenneth Tingle Genre: Memoir Publisher: Self-published In some ways, The Girl in the Italian Bakery is an inspiring story of a boy with a troubled childhood who perseveres through more than any person should have to endure. On the other, it is highly indulgent, filled with excruciatingly detailed stories from Kenneth Tingle’s life. But, oh the potential! There is so much sadness — and hope — in this book. When we first meet young Kenny, a boy of six, we learn that his family is barely surviving. His father is gone, one brother is mentally disabled, the other brother is in and out of trouble, and his mother isn’t able to make ends meet.
