Can anyone recommend a good book on the basics of Quantum Mechanics?

In summary, Quantum Mechanics is a branch of physics that studies the behavior of matter and energy on a very small scale. It has revolutionized our understanding of the fundamental building blocks of the universe and has led to many groundbreaking technologies. Anyone with a basic understanding of mathematics and physics can learn the basics of Quantum Mechanics, and there are many resources available, including books and online courses. Some popular books on the subject include "Introduction to Quantum Mechanics" by David J. Griffiths, "Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum" by Leonard Susskind and Art Friedman, and "Quantum Mechanics: A Modern Development" by Leslie E. Ballentine. Online resources for learning Quantum Mechanics include websites like Khan Academy, MIT OpenCourseWare,

I am a young student striving to learn more about science. I'm quite a nerd, I study all day long and I'm matriculating this year at the age of 16... I've chosen to study more into Quantum Chemistry and I need a book!
