Book about Bea Franco (Terry in On The Road)

Alice Braga as Terry
I just ran across this article about American Book Award winner Tim Z. Hernandez tracking down Bea Franco, the real-life model for Terry in Jack Kerouac's On The Road, and interviewing her for an upcoming fictional book written from her point of view. He's currently shopping the novel.

Wow, that's fascinating. Is your grandmother still alive? I loved that section of On the Road.
