The Miller's daughter never had a name, not until her first day of school when a magical boy named Merlin gave her one. From then on, she was his Millie, and would remain so until...
...The Miller, a known liar, told his most infamous lie of all. Word that his daughter spins straw into gold travels straight to the king, who sends for Millie to see if this is true. Trapped by her father's lie, Millie is desperate for a magic that even Merlin doesn't have.
Then, a little man appears and offers to help, for a small price. Millie agrees, but soon finds herself in too deep, unwilling to pay. Graciously, he offers her a simple way out; all she needs is a name, the very thing she never had.
The promise of a new life that glitters much like gold forces Millie to make an important decision; admit the truth or become a liar, too.
