More About the Author

Shana Hammaker grew up in California, then bounced around the country for a bit before settling in Austin, Texas.

Likes: stories that make her laugh and highlight the fact that all people are flawed and all people are beautiful, but not all in the same ways.

Dislikes: over-use of archaic terms such as forsooth and verily. I say verily! Cut it out! Forsooth!




Life is held together by stories and hope. Shana is a bit of a hope junkie.

Imagine opening a story and being immediately tossed into a world you never knew of. Where hobos named "Shroom" are the norm , where dumpster-diving for cookies is a weekly affair (and yes, the title means what it means!), and where being invited as a guest on Jerry Springer can seriously happen, when you're standing on a street corner in Hollywood.

Did I mention this is a world you never knew of?

Despite the intriguing lack of familiarity, the voice that tells the story is familiar, comfortable, like an old friend regaling you with tales from the past. And I just loved the fast-forwards to present day, and what the cookie dumpster represented in the grand scheme of things.

I wish and hope there will be more editions to this memoir!

I truly loved this story. A very real look of life on the streets. No punches are pulled nor should they be. A very touching story in how the cookies in a dumpster helped to feed a starving girl and also comfort her in those rough times. Rounding out to contacting the company to tell them how much she appreciated them and loved their cookies, and how the loving and compassionate owners responded to voice their admiration and other kind words. All the while openly sharing and showing us the highs and very low lows of her times through it all. I very highly recommend this.

The Cookie Dumpster is a simple yet vividly told account of the life of a "gutterpunk". It is the true story of the author's experience: that of being a homeless minor. Ms. Hammaker shows herself to be a gifted story-teller. Her narrative sparkles with wit and is consistently upbeat. It paints a picture of someone who refused to let her circumstances define her or limit her. I found myself wanting more; I sincerely hope the author will continue this memoir.

This was a very very short read, maybe 20 minutes. While it's a nice story, I would've liked it to be longer...'how a homeless teen became a responsible young woman' type of story.

It was more the length of a magazine article if anyone cares.

This book was a great read. I gave it four stars instead of 5 only because I thought it was too short. This book is about life on the streets and a company who left cookies wrapped in plastic in their dumpster so that the poor and homeless could enjoy them.

This was interesting, and if it is actually true, I am sorry that the author had such a rough time of it. It was sad to read that so many people's lives are being wasted, living on the streets, especially the young ones. This was short but well written.
