Baba Dunja’s Last Love 
by Alina Bronsky 

Such an unusual story of a strong, engaging woman who returns to live in her hometown just a short distance from Chernobyl despite high levels of radiation and near complete isolation. The author does an amazing job building characters and atmosphere with concise and eloquent prose.

The Kremlin’s Candidate  
by Jason Matthews 

The finale of the Red Sparrow series. Red Sparrow is the code name for an American sponsored Russian spy living in Moscow. She uncovers a plot to place a Russian backed American military officer to a high-ranking post in the US government. Great use of spy-craft secrets in the story. The best of the Red Sparrow Trilogy.

The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth 
by Josh Levin 

Part true-crime, part sociological study & wholly fascinating! This book delves into the mysterious past of a woman who changed her identity multiple times and was accused of crimes including murder and kidnapping. She became infamous when charged with welfare fraud, and her story used by politicians like Ronald Reagan for their own agendas.

The Big Ones: How natural disasters have shaped us  
(and what we can do about them) 
by Lucile M. Jones 

An examination of historical and modern natural disasters from a scientific perspective as well as one focused on people and societies. It's a fast read that would be a great for high school students.
