Added DiffLines:

* OddballDoppelganger: When it's revealed that Jenny Ten was the tenth of a series of genetically engineered clones, we meet her "sister," Jenny Eight. Our Jenny wants nothing to do with Eight because she feels (quite understandably) that Eight threatens her sense of individuality. By story's end, though, we realize that their personalities are actually quite different, and the two reconcile.
