"Not a word is wasted. Imagery is of the sharpest level. There is so much to love about this angry, meditative novel that reading it is almost an act of catharsis."—The AU Review
"[T]ackling a complex, fraught topic – the very essence of what it is to be a New Zealander – with courage, style and insight."—Stuff New Zealand
"A coming-of-age story that is full of evocative sketches of the North Island’s landscapes."—Traveller magazine
"Attraction is an exquisite story…The prose is emotive and artistic…Attraction is impossible to put down…It is a brilliant, beautiful novel."—Booksellers NZ
"Attraction abounds with sharp imagery, intergenerational relationships and the natural, historic and domestic environments of modern New Zealand. Ruby Porter is a gifted new writer."—Patricia Grace, author of Waiariki
"Attraction peels back the landscape to reveal deeper truths. The writer is right inside her material – a road trip that delivers a political and sexual coming-of-age narrative. The book is a slow-burning fuse that brims with intensely felt experience. Porter is an exciting new talent."—Lloyd Jones, author of Mr. Pip
