12 by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge book coverTitle: 12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady's Fight for Redemption by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge
Reviewed by: Frankie E., 11th Grade
Rating: 4 stars

12, the story of the Tom Brady’s 2016 season, was remarkable. It took a look at what happened before the season, his journey throughout the season, and the adversity he had to overcome throughout all of it. Ultimately, I thought there wasn’t enough background information on Tom Brady. It didn’t go into much detail about the history of his career and what he had done leading up to it. But I liked how the book talked about past scandals from former NFL players and former scandals about Tom Brady. It shows how the league dealt with past accusations and how the players responded.
