The Coldest Girl In Coldtown by Holly Black
Vampires are real and have become a deadly contagion all over the world. The United States decides on a novel solution: infected cities become quarantined from the rest of the nation. These quarantines are known as Coldtowns; walled cities where vampires and humans (some willing, some not) live side by side. Nothing escapes the Coldtown while newly infected are purposefully incarcerated in the Coldtown.
Coldtowns are provided electricity and are wired with the Internet. Live streams pour from Coldtowns and have become the ultimate reality show for humans the world over. The shows paint an appealing picture of luxury and immortality. Adults, teens, and children desperately want to be turned make pilgrimages to their nearest Coldtown hoping to get in and fulfill their immortal destiny.

Unfortunately she has slept the day away and now it is almost sunset. As she attempts to leave she discovers her ex-boyfriend chained to a bed. He has been bitten but left alive. With one drop of human blood he will be turned. Instead of leaving him she decides to free him. But their is another boy chained in the room as well; a vampire boy. She takes pity and frees him as well after he promises not to attack. They escape just before dusk.
