Miss Freckles is a girl, a few years older than Melly, who appears in Melly's dreams as freckle-faced, orange-haired, and eighteen feet tall. Despite having height in common with Melly, Miss Freckles antagonizes her and calls her a freak, stating that Melly has no right to associate with normal-sized people.

Miss Freckles also appears in a deeply-repressed memory from Melly's childhood, leading Melly to speculate that perhaps she is a real person, even an older sister--except that Mr. and Mrs. Mills never mentioned having any other children.
