Life didn’t do Kenny Tingle any favors. In The Girl in the Italian Bakery, follow his journey from childhood in a tough housing project north of Boston, the abduction and disappearance of a childhood friend, to the complete destruction of a family. His introduction to crime and the years he spent in foster homes. The poor choices he made in high school and the startling climax on prom night. Although he never has trouble meeting girls, the one girl he longs for always seems out of reach. The Girl in the Italian Bakery is the remarkably true story of always keeping hope, even when there is little left to hope for. This is a story of surviving through extreme adversity, and, ultimately, redemption.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Outstanding book. I read it in one day and would recommend highly.


To put it simply, this book is fantastic. I honestly had a hard time putting it down. This story is very well-written, the characters well-defined and I highly recommend it. I liked it so much that I’m going to add it to my actual library, not just my virtual one.


This book was very well written. If you like personal accounts of people struggling to overcome diversity, then you’ll love this book. It was so interesting and engaging that I often found myself wondering if it really was a true story.


It is a very enjoyable book to read on a journey of life and how Kenny Tingle survived. I thought it was a very good read and heartwarming of how a boy survived growing up and all the journeys he took on his way to becoming a wonderful man in the end!


Ken Tingle captures the pain and despair of growing up in a tough place without much hope or opportunity. He honors his mother who struggled to do her best; he grapples with the wounds inflicted on him by a neglectful father. Despite all odds, he turns his life around in a heartwarming story of hope and redemption. Awesome read.
