auto mechanic tools?

I am going into eight grade this year, and have wanted to be an auto mech for about 4 years now. I love taking apart something that's broken, putting in something new, and having it work again. I was wondering, though, what kind of tools would be reliable for an auto mechanic, and, mabey ,an amazon or photo link so I can know how much they cost and what a good set looks like. Advice on the job would be appreciated, too. Thanks.
