He was putting it extremely mild, but the OP is 15, may not really want/need the Gantz books which are the most important egkheridia. The best option here is just to tell said OP to read actual texts in translation. If you must have a compilation there's a translation of both Hyginus and Apollodorus in one volume somewhere, try that.
Things like Graves, Bullfynch etc are crap/outdated, the German stuff full of really poor scholarship and the Gantz books brilliant but maybe a touch heavy going. At this stage its best to read and enjoy.
