Plywood unsupported can be wavy. The trick is to hide the support.

One way is to router a tongue on the back of the verticals. Attach the back in sections between the verticals. Tie to top and bottom together to prevent spraying. If the shelves are tight fitting they’ll contribute to stability.

1×12 stock might work better than plywood. Else you’re going to have to put trim on the cut ply edge to make it look nice.

2×12 is overkill.
