Tone is how the author or speaker feels about a character or situation in a text. You can determine the tone by the words that the characters say or what happens to the character. An author's tone can be optimistic, pessimistic, hopeless, frustrated, indifferent, agitated, desperate, content, and more. It's all about how the author feels.
Style: Style is the way the author writes. It's the
-words chosen (words might be silly, dark, nonsense, etc)
-the length and complexity of the sentences
-whether or figurative language is used or the author is saying EXACTLY what it meant,
