A Slice of Pie introduces the world to Jake and Penelope a couple married for eighteen years with three children they named for characters and people they enjoyed reading about; Huck, Levi, and Louisa. In a small town setting found in the four corners area of the southwest the kids are propelled forward through the experiences of teenage life as their parents life together becomes stagnant while going through the process of Penelope's illness and their life's path changing to accommodate her illness instead of their plans and dreams.

The reader is allowed the same experience as Tom. They are welcomed into ongoing conversations in a family and a marriage; between siblings, parents and children, friends old and new, and first crushes. The conversations that people who love each other have while going through the pitfalls of everyday life and then deciding how to survive, if they can, when life throws them a curve ball strait to the gut.
